Felicity’s reviews of websites regarding accessibility for blind and vision-impaired people.
Hi everyone, my name is Felicity. I have been totally blind since birth, meaning I have no vision whatsoever. Though I do not believe that blindness or having any other disability should prevent you from grabbing any opportunity that comes your way. It should also not stop you from living life to the fullest. The instructions I am writing are specific to the websites I am reviewing.
Review of ABC website by Felicity
Welcome to my review of the ABC website and its accessibility for blind and vision impaired people.
The headings of the text versions of the news stories were able to be accessed and visited by Jaws. The links I had visited allowed Jaws to notify me of this when I read them. When I first arrived on the site, hitting H went to the link labeled “Top stories.” Pressing the letter H also allows you to move between headings using Jaws. When Jaws comes across graphics on this site it will give you a description of what is in each one. The sources for all the news stories are read out with Jaws. Jaws also mentions when the text story also has an audio link.
