Blind people navigate differently on mobile devices than on desktop computers. This webinar will demonstrate and explain how to make digital content accessible for both. 

For this special World Usability Day Webinar, we bring back Joseph DiNero as our presenter, an assistive technology specialist who is blind.  Joseph will demonstrate and explain strategies he uses when browsing online, visiting a new website for the first time and share his experiences with navigating web content on mobile versus desktop. 

This Webinar will cover:

  • Accessibility as the base for Usability
  • How the WCAG is linked to Screen Reader Desktop and Mobile Usability
  • How a blind person  accesses and uses technology on mobile
  • How a blind person accesses and uses screen reader technology on desktop
  • Live Q & A
