Hi!

A few months ago I wrote about a Norwegian project where we try to
define the necessary user skills for visually impaired "surfers". We do
this to improve the education MediaLT provide. Moreover, it is useful
for us to have knowledge about what we can expect that users can, for
example. when we make or test sites.

Now we have created two documents: one for screen reader and another for
screen magnifier. It is only Chapter 3, which is different in the
documents. In chapter 3 we have tried to define what the visually
impaired should know in addition to a standardized reference level (for
example basic screen reader functionality). We use the ICDL:
International Computer Driving Licence (module 7) as the standard level.

We are very grateful if you have time to read the documents. Of course,
OK if you only have knowledge of either screen reader or screen
magnifier.
