CELA is Canada’s largest nationwide library service for persons unable to read print. It offers materials in alternate print formats such as recorded DAISY audio , digital text, and braille. Gerry shows how to find a magazine in Direct to Player format and apply search filters. He also shows how to subscribe to magazines. He then describes how to find and read newspapers online. His explanations describe keyboard navigation and shortcuts for blind users who cannot use a mouse.

Any chance of teaching the Mac computer commands for accessing CELA? I find most posts are geared to PC and I have a Mac.
In both CELA presentations Aug 12 and 19 I tried to emphasize the CELA web site organization and functionality over screen reader instructions so hopefully you can still benefit by following the podcast on a MAC computer. That said we will look through our GTT member list to see if there is a MAC user qualified to do a CELA presentation from a MAC screen reader perspective. Thanks for commenting.
