  • Graham Armfield: Assistive Technology Demo

    WordCamp Europe 2016Speaker: Graham Armfield

    July 4, 2016 — While speaking about accessibility I’ve realised that for some people the key to understanding why accessibility is so important comes from experiencing how people with disabilities actually use the websites we build. So I’ll be demoing two pieces of assistive technology (AT): Dragon – voice recognition software and NVDA – a screen reader.

  • Graham Armfield: Assistive Technology (AT) Demo (Accessibility)

    WordCamp Edinburgh 2015Speaker: Graham Armfield

    December 17, 2015 — In this presentation I’m going to demo two pieces of assistive technology, and show you how they are actually used by people who rely on them to access the web.
    Featured assistive technology (AT):
    Dragon NaturallySpeaking – voice recognition software, typically used by those with motor impairments for whom using mouse and keyboard is not an option.
    NVDA – a free, open source screen reader, typically used by those who are blind, or with poor eyesight, but also sometimes used by dyslexics and others with cognitive impairments.
    Come and learn what it’s like to browse the web from a different perspective.
