Fail Even Faster: Utilizing Personas and Paper Prototypes

This session will be more hands on.

Navigating Screen Readers

Are you intimidated by operating a screen reader? For most sighted individuals using a screen reader is something they've never done before. If you're a developer or a QA that is producing accessible products using a screen reader becomes something that we must use for our jobs. And frankly, learning how to use one is not a easy feat.

This talk will go over how screen readers interact with the web, the basics of getting a screen reader setup on your computer, and how to operate it. You'll leave this session greater knowledge of accessible development and how to use a screen reader effectively.
