Hi, I'm Vikki Vaughan, and today we'll learn how to download digital books from the BARD collection. This workshop is intended for screen reader users. We'll be using NVDA as our screen reader, but it will work pretty much the same no matter which screen reader you use. If you are a low vision user, be sure to check out our low vision version of this workshop. In this series, we've learned how to use the BARD website to locate desired books and magazines.
Today, we'll take the next step and download our favorite content to a Windows based computer. We'll start off from the BARD website where we conducted a keyword search for our desired book. If you'd like a refresher on searching for books, check out the workshop in this series which dives deep into that very topic. The book we plan to download today is Moby Dick, or The Whale.
Ed: 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?
