About this Session

Anyone using an iPhone or Droid also has access to a screen reader which can be used to test website accessibility. A team of experienced screen reader users and testers will demonstrate how they use their mobile device screen readers to interact with different sites and how navigation differs from the default options most sighted people use. The session will also show how anyone can toggle a screen reader on and off and use it to interact with online content.
