Presentation with a Blind JAWS Screen Reader User

Introduction

Website developers are becoming increasingly aware of the need to cater for blind and visually impaired users but little practical guidance is available.

In this course a presenter, assisted by a blind screen reader user, will illustrate the issues screen reader users face and the aspects of design that do and don't make a difference.

Duration: Half a day.

Who Should Attend? Website owners, designers, developers, testers, content creators and project managers.

Course Size: We limit these demonstrations to 12 attendees to ensure everyone has the opportunity to be involved.

Cost: 150 per attendee (minimum 8 attendees) plus VAT

The price is based on conducting the training at clients' premises in Central London. We can conduct the training anywhere else in the UK, in which case an additional time and travel costs will apply.

Agenda

  • How blind people visualise web pages.

Throughout the presentation a blind screen reader user will navigate through a variety of websites to illustrate the importance of first impressions, consistency of design and semantic markup.
