December 10th Webcast: Getting to Know VoiceOver
Published:December 8, 2009
There is still time to register for Thursday's (December 10th) webcast: Getting to Know VoiceOver, facilitated by Cynthia Curry. VoiceOver is known as Apple’s built-in screen reader, but can be better described as an accessible interface for everyone. Not to be confused with text to speech, VoiceOver provides voice description of all onscreen elements, features a caption panel, and allows users to control their computer using only the keyboard. Our guest, Steve Sawczyn of AT Maine, will demonstrate why VoiceOver is a tool that all educators should get to know. Most importantly, we’ll discuss how we can improve our UDL practices by understanding the unique learning needs of students who are blind and have low vision.
You can find a link to registration at http://maine121.org/webcasts/. Registrants will receive a link to the WebCast as well as login information.
Our next webcast is on December 17th: Making Meaning: Creating “Realities” – Building and recreating models and simulations to better understand the processes behind phenomena. A description of this webcast will be available at the beginning of next week and registration is currently available at http://maine121.org/webcasts/.
WebCasts will be held each Thursday at both 3:15 pm and 7:15 pm.
