Hi, I'm Vikki Vaughan and today we'll learn how to search for digital books and magazines through BARD. This workshop is intended for users with low vision. If you use a screen-reading program, be sure to check out our screen-reading version of this workshop. In this series, we learned how to establish a BARD account. Today, we'll take the next step and search the BARD website for desired book and magazine.
We'll begin our search from the BARD website. The web address is nlsbard.loc.gov. Now, if you're new to getting on the web you might just wanna check out our Getting Online series of workshops. Back at our page, here we see two edit fields. The first one asks for the email address that we used when we signed up for NLS and BARD. The next edit field requires our password. Okay, just one more step and we're in.
Ed Haines: Now that you’ve had a chance to learn a bit with us, we’d like to learn more about you; your name, email address, how you heard about Hadley and your relationship to vision loss.
Learning more will give us a better understanding of how to personalize Hadley just for you. And don’t worry, everything you share with us online will be kept safe and secure. Of course, if you’d prefer to talk through these questions, we’re just a phone call away at 800-323-4238.
Taking these few steps saves your preferences so you can continue right where you left off and track your progress every time you log on. Plus it connects you to the Hadley community, and helps sustain our funding to keep Hadley free of charge. And last but not least, it gives you direct access to experts, like me. Now, where were we?
