Nov 28, 2023

Mastering a new screen reader can be a daunting task: with a plethora of screen readers to choose from, and the learning curve of new commands it’s easy to become overwhelmed. Thankfully, there’s a new website to help you along your screen-reader journey!


Blind Abilities podcast host Simon Bonenfant joined Assistive Technology Specialists Allison Mello and Max Avendano in the virtual studio to discuss everything you need to know about the new SRT Screen Reader training website.


You can access the site by visiting this link.

The site offers full-length tutorials of some of the most popular Screen Readers such as Voiceover, Jaws, Kromevox, and NVDA.


Interested in practicing the information you learned? Take a look at the Game Portal, where you can find fun ways to develop your skills.


In addition to discussing the features of the website, Allison and Max give an overview of their work at the California School for the Blind, and how they used their lived experiences to compile the site. Don’t forget to check back often, as they plan to provide updates as new information becomes available.
