@AppleVis I made a post the other day, about using #place-markers in #jaws & @DavidGoldfield surprised me by sharing it on his Twitter page. Can I share it to the new #Windows section of your website, for more exposure?


Last week a colleague asked me for practical, real-world demonstrations from real screen reader users. I think I have decent ideas but I'd like to hear about anything others have shared and found effective. #accessibility #blind #screen #reader #JAWS #NVDA #VoiceOver


today I passed an image from my wife's blog through #PictureSmart AI in #JAWS just for fun, then showed the description to her. She was very impressed! @freedomscientific


I wrote an article about how to make hastags accessible. Did some #ScreenReader testing with #JAWS, #NVDA, #VoiceOver and #Narrator, which was fun!

Pretty long one though, contains a bunch of tables for comparison. Enjoy the ride!

I wanted Renpy games to speak with screen readers, so I made a very quick and dirty hack/patch to make them speak with JAWS and NVDA instead of SAPI.

Introducing Face in View. A revolutionary new feature in JAWS and Fusion that tells you how to position yourself so that your face is clearly on-camera. Face in View uses facial tracking points to audibly guide you to look directly into your camera. Check out this short video: https://youtu.be/uAD7z-rfV5Q?si=ApMg-21BDVrMWB_s

Is it just me, or is the interface for searching in #thunderbird really clunky with #NVDAsr? Seems like it takes a lot of steps just to view the list of results. I find myself resorting to iOS mail if I need to track down a message from a few days ago. Is it better with a different #Screenreader? #accessibility #a11y #Jaws #JFW

@matt RIM is awesome!
I just wish #jaws on the #ElBraille handled the commands more gracefully. As of right now, it doesn't know what to do with them.
