This series of presentations will focus on how patrons with disabilities access the internet. We'll demo how a blind user utilizes his/her screen reader to access the Internet. Speakers will also discuss accessibility issues in higher education based on the EDUCAUSE report, talk about differences between accessibility for people with visual disabilities and accessibility for people with learning disabilities, and present research findings regarding web accessibility at North American University Libraries.
