Peer support for digital skills & inclusion in Education and Employment


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.

    All visually impaired tech users should check out the tutorials created by NCBI’s Technical Support Officer, Paul Traynor. They cover a very wide range of technologies and tasks such as using Facebook, Skype, YouTube, iTunes and Dropbox; booking flights online; setting up an email account; using Windows7, Vista and XP; Microsoft Word; Apple Mac and iPhone; installing antivirus software; etc. All tutorials are simple and easy to follow. You can get them from Paul’s tutorials page on Easylinks.
