Hello, my name is Ricky Enger, and today we'll learn how to search for information online. We're using the Google Chrome 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. One of the coolest things about being online is that we can find information about pretty much anything we've ever wanted to know.
Seriously, there's no limit to the things that we can find online. We just need to know how to search for what we want. So how do we do that? Well, let's start with an option that's built right into our Chrome browser. It's called the address and search bar. And for some of us, it's the first thing that pops up when we open our browser. Even if our browser shows us something different when we open it, we can always get to our address and search bar, by pressing our alt key and the letter D.
Screen Reader: Address and search bar edit has auto-complete control plus L blank.
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?
