Hello, my name is Ricky Enger. And today we're going to learn a little about our web browser, which is the program we use to access all the wonderful information that's available online. We're using the Google Chrome browser along with NVDA as our screen reader. But the concepts we learn here will be pretty similar no matter which browser and screen reader we're using. Okay, so before we can learn how to use our browser, we first need to open it and we can do that in a couple of different ways. The first way is to use a shortcut on our desktop. So we'll press our Windows key plus the letter D, D for desktop.
Screen Reader: Folder view list.
Ricky: And now, since our desktop shortcut is called Google Chrome, we'll just press the letter G until we land on it.
Screen Reader: Google Chrome 7/8.
Ricky: And there it is. But sometimes for whatever reason, we may not have a shortcut on our desktop.
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?
