When I first arrived at HappinessFirst I started assisting in testing the website in regards to its use for blind and vision impaired people. When I first started testing the site, I found that certain aspects were inaccessible through Jaws. For example, I found that when I pressed the letter H Jaws was not able to take me to the headings but this was rectified and Jaws now moves easily between the headings. I also found that some of the links on the site were not able to be read out by Jaws. This has now been fixed and Jaws is able to read out all links. And the enter command is able to allow any vision impaired user to visit the links.
In the initial site testing Jaws was unable to access the audio player. Jaws now simply skips over the section of the site. Jaws was also unable to describe some of the graphics on the site. Jaws now skips over these as well.
