Microsoft Word is a valuable tool for writing and editing all kinds of documents – from simple notes to entire books. Yes, you can use Word even if you have no sight. What’s more, you don’t have to be an accomplished writer to create well organized, structured documents that can be easily navigated by keyboard users.

Join Gerry Chevalier, a retired IT professional, as he covers the basics of using Word entirely from the keyboard with no mouse. This short presentation will demonstrate the screen reader user’s experience with preparing Word documents (including creating headings, bulleted lists and tables). Several low vision users will then discuss the ways in which they use Word in their work and home lives.

This technology workshop meets via Zoom web conference on Wednesday, February 16 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Pacific Time. Call in information will be given upon registration.
