Abstract:

Accessing the Internet presents a variety of challenges to low-vision and blind users. This session will demonstrate how to overcome these challenges using the new ZoomText 8.

Attendees will see a complete demonstration of ZoomText's Internet access features, including visual enhancements to text and graphics, web page navigation, and continuous reading with the new AppReader tool. Links can also be executed and AppReader starts reading the new web page automatically. With direct information from Internet Explorer, ZoomText reads web pages with 100% accuracy.

Special attention will be focused on accessing common web page elements, including complex page formats (e.g. columns, tables), search engines, forms and shopping carts. This session is recommended for industry professionals that evaluate, recommend, teach or purchase assistive technology products.

This presentation will include:

The presentation will conclude with a question and answer session as well as an opportunity for attendees to try out the product.
