Presenter: Gerry Chevalier

In this 43 minute podcast, Gerry will demonstrate the experience of using Windows from the keyboard with a screen reader and no mouse. The presentation is not intended to teach screen readers but rather provide an experience of what it is like to use a screen reader when you cannot see the screen or use the mouse. It is intended for low vision people who are struggling to use Windows with a mouse as their vision loss progresses and they might wonder what the screen reader experience is like. For his presentation Gerry will use the Narrator screen reader since it is part of Windows 10. He will demonstrate:

  • Desktop navigation
  • Document’s folder navigation
  • Editing and saving a document in Notepad
  • Using Outlook email
  • Using a web browser
