Tools. Public Webinar on Wednesday. February 25 at 2 PM Eastern
Presenters: Dr. Stacy Kelly, Policy Research Associate, American Foundation

The American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) explored ways in which popular
online educational tools can be made more accessible with the help of
nearly 100 individuals who recently completed our online survey. Findings
indicated the most important and necessary features of online educational
tools present significant problems for those using assistive technology
such as screen reading or screen magnification software.
