Blind CiH graduate completes online survey unaided

Janine Lonergan, Computers in Homes Coordinator in Dunedin, shared a cool story with me tonight – about one of her graduates who is totally blind but managed to complete the online pre-graduation CiH survey on his own. Apparently he has a plug-in device that converts text to speech, so that the SurveyMonkey questions are spoken and he can respond using the keyboard.  Well done Barbara Craig, our CiH researcher, in creating a survey that is accessible and usable by people who are blind.  That said, Barbara might be just as amazed as me!
