Hello, my name is Ricky Enger. And today we'll learn about various items that we're likely to find on a typical webpage. We're using the Chrome web browser along with NVDA as our Screen Reader. But the concepts we learn will be pretty similar, no matter which screen reader and browser we're using. There is so much we can do online, right? Can search for information, we can read the news, shop for products, find books, and that's just scratching the surface. So as we begin doing everything we wanna do online, we're going to find that our web pages contain things other than text. We need to know what those things are and how to work with them.
So a web page is basically made up of various types of building blocks and we call those building blocks elements. Let's start with the element that's probably most familiar to us, a link.
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?
