Intro to Screen Reader Technology

October 11, 2017 - 10:30am to 12:00pm
October 12, 2017 - 1:30pm to 3:00pm

Screen reader technology provides auditory access to a computer/mobile device for individuals who experience blindness or low vision. Alongside a native screen reader user, attendees will experience hands-on demonstrations with the latest built-in and open source screen reader technology (Voiceover on Mac OS systems and NVDA on Windows machines). Join us in learning the basics of how to use this technology, which will aid in running tests during website development. Periodically running these tests in various development stages aids in avoiding accessibility bumps and bruises. Attendees are encouraged to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to play along.
