Hi, all.

These survey results were very interesting for me! I get a lot of questions from our campus web teams about how screen reader users approach web sites. We are attempting to develop in-house accessibility testing expertise with a student worker who also wants and needs to learn to use screen readers for academic and personal reasons (recently became low vision and will be blind in the near future).

The student is exploring online resources about screen readers and trying to get familiar with JAWS and VoiceOver for now. Do you have resources or suggestions that might help? We are reaching out to the National Association of Blind Students and our local office of the Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind.

Thanks for any advice,
