Peer support for digital skills & inclusion in Education and Employment

John O'Regan

On February 24th, 2015, the Google Accessibility Team announced the release of five videos on YouTube to help blind and visually impaired people get started with Google Docs, Drives, Slides, and Sheets using the NVDA screen reader with the Firefox web browser on Windows.

    Ask me whatever you like… but don’t always expect a coherent response! :) If I can’t answer your question, I’ll recommend someone who will, or I’ll send you a link to a helpful web page.

    I use the JAWS and NVDA sccreen readers on a Windows 7 PC and I use VoiceOver on my iPhone 5S. I also do a little blogging on the side and I know all about WordPress.com.

    I’ve been making contributions to the VIP Students mailing list since 2009. I’ve submitted a couple of pieces to the Cork Centre for Independent Living newsletter. And I’ve recently started The A11y Files, a blog about assistive technology and web accessibility from an end-user’s perspective.

    • : I know a little about HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I'm familiar with Windows, and I have an intimate knowledge of the JAWS and NVDA screen readers. When answering a question, I try not to make assumptions and I break up my solutions into easy-to-follow steps. Well, that's the idea, at any rate... ;)
