I'm Vikki Vaughan and today, we'll learn about various tools we use to move around a web page and to go from one page to another. 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.
Let's start from the NLS website to explore these tools. Essentially, there are three ways to navigate: by pointing and clicking on a heading, a button or a link that automatically takes us to another page by typing a web address into the address bar of the web browser and pressing enter, or by clicking the navigation buttons on the browsers tool bar, which are usually located at the top of the screen. Let's take them one by one.
As we discussed in our workshop, Exploring the Browser, headings are a basic way to organize and bring attention to important information on a website. By separating the critical information, we can more easily locate them. The exact topic in which we're interested.
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?
