Hi, I'm Vikki Vaughan, and today we'll discuss how to create bookmarks to save and retrieve our favorite web pages. 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.
Once we've started using the web, we find there will be websites that we visit over and over again, sometimes on a daily basis. A good example might be a banking website. It's nice to know that we have an easy way to save these websites so we can quickly locate them. By creating bookmarks, we essentially place it all of our favorite websites into a list. We can then use the list to return to a particular website whenever we wish. No more having to remember an exact website address.
To create a bookmark in our browser, we first must visit the desired site. And we just so happen to be on our banking website. In the address bar we find a star icon at the far right of our address bar.
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?
