[Athen] Accessible Screen Capture

Hello Susan,

If the worker is using some flavor of Windows, I would suggest sticking with the screen capture built into Windows (Alt + PrtScn.). Someone may need to do some cropping of the image later. The reason I suggest this is because most screen capture programs also install a video chain driver that may cause problems with the screenreader, unless the person sticks with NVDA. NVDA does not have a video chain driver. For example, Camtasia-Snagit will not work if JAWS is installed prior to Camtasia's installation. At one time I did more screen capture and I knew how different screenreaders interacted with different screen capture programs. Usually the two programs did not interact well.

I hope this helps.

Subject: [Athen] Accessible Screen Capture

Does anyone know of an accessible screen capture program? I have a blind worker who is doing some work with our remediation team, and she really needs to be doing some screen capture as she goes when possible. I have not had to look into this before so don't quite know where to direct her.

Thanks in advance for advice and assistance.
