Victor Tsaran and the Yahoo! User Interface group have put together this video to introduce the screen reader usage. It’s an eye-opener to actually experience a screen-reader in person. This video will give developers a good sample.

I hope you’ll do more of these…
Your accessibility video was especially interesting and informative. As a website developer I downloaded and tested a screenreader in May 2007 in an ongoing effort to educate my small business clients and others to accessibility issues. Not being vision impaired, using a screenreader was daunting so doing the test run gave me a greater appreciation for the need to educate people about this subject. I’ve written accessiblility posts with advice and another with a freeware review on my blog at the following links:
