I'm Vikki Vaughan and today we'll explore opening and navigating between multiple webpages. We'll also explore sidebars as a way to navigate within a web page. 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.
A word we hear a lot these days is multitasking. All of us can relate to having several different things going on at once, and it's no different when browsing the web. In our previous workshop; Website Basics, we learned how to open a webpage using links and the address bar.
Let's start from the NLS website to pick up where we left off. Let's say we want to open a new browser session to search for information on our favorite author, but we don't want to close the NLS website. We have two ways we can accomplish this. In the first method, we use our mouse pointer to click on the plus sign to the right of our folder to open a new tab.
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?
