Working for People with Sight Loss

NCBI Labs Technology Live Event 48

On this Live Event we are joined by Glen Gordan, who for the last 25 years has been the architect behind the popular JAWS Screen Reader. In the mid-1990s, the flourishing popularity of Microsoft Windows and its graphical user interface brought with it much concern for many computer users who were blind or had low vision. On the show this week Glen tells us how JAWS was adapted to a GUI, how the software has been developed in the intervening years, and what more we can look forward to in the years to come.

Also this week we find out how to create a shopping list with Alexa and discuss expectations with the recently announced Windows 11.

On Meet the Team we chat with Ann-Marie Walsh to find out about her role in NCBI. Ann-Marie is a Community Resource Worker based in Kilkenny.
