A Great Technology Training Resource

On February 23, 2012, I came across a web page that deals with technology training for the blind. The web page is www.blindtraining.com.

The first thing that I noticed about the web site was its ease of use and accessibility. Everything was categorized in headings, and the links were easy to navigate to using Jaws for Windows, Voice Over on the Mac, and Window Eyes screen readers.

The web site caters to trainers who write electronic tutorial text books on the use of Software’s such as Word, and Internet Explorer just to name but a few. There is even a link that points to free electronic text files in the use of Windows 7 with Jaws and Window Eyes, and how to deal with the ribbon menu in Microsoft office 2007 or 2010.

Music Technology-Breaking the Barrier

On January 19th, the Hadley School for the Blind hosted an online presentation on music software allowing easy access to the visually impaired. You can download and listen to the presentation from the Hadley web site at http://www.hadley.edu/PastSeminars.asp.  Follow the link to "Braille Music Technology".
