Sponsored by Maryland School for the Blind, Cody LaPlante, from eye.t Assistive Technology for Vision Professionals, will present a free one-hour webinar called Screen Reader Troubleshooting on February 11, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern.
Key commands are not the end all, be all when it comes to using a screen reader. Screen Readers like JAWS and NVDA are complex pieces of software and using them, just as with any software, takes practice and patience. In this session, we will discuss what to do when everything seems to fall apart. Troubleshooting and problem solving are perhaps the hardest skills to master. After learning some general guidelines, and specific screen reader tips, we will play some troubleshooting games where participants will have to work with the presenter to troubleshoot the “problem” so that the next time, things feel like they are falling apart, there will be some tools in that “troubleshooting toolbox”.
