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 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 establish a BARD account. Today we'll take the next step and search the BARD website for desired books and magazines. We'll begin our search from the BARD website. The web address is nlsbard.loc.gov.
Screen Reader: Document, email address edit, blank.
Vikki: If you are new to getting on the web you might want to check out our Getting Online series of workshops. When we first land on the website, our focus is on an edit field.
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?
