Hello Roger,

this is a very good video to demonstrate how people use Braille display. One improvement idea though. All 6 min are dedicated to showing one person's hands or face, but IMO it would be actually good to occasionally show those search results as well. I mean it is good to see a clear link between manipulation of braille display and keyboard and the actual result of these manipulations.

Br, Anna Zhuang

Subject: refresh braille video


I am due to give a couple of workshops on accessibility and wanted to show those attending a refreshable Braille device. While there are many videos showing screen readers in use, I noticed there are very few showing Braille machines.

So Bruce Maguire kindly agreed to help out and I have made a 6 minute video of him describing how and why he uses a screen reader with refreshable Braille to access the web and he demonstrates in real time (apart from the time taken for search results to be found) how he finds a book on Amazon.

The video along with a transcript is on my blog at http://www.dingoaccess.com/accessibility/refreshable-braille-and-the-web/

Please feel free to use it if you think it will be helpful in spreading the word.
