Accessing web based courses

As technology continues to steam along, blind and sight impaired students need to find a way to keep up. It is only going to become more popular so what do blind and sight impaired students do? This is the big question for me who loves to take web based courses.

We can lobby for more understanding from web developers, educational institutions, and professors and teachers. We can start by doing this in an orderly way using logic as our mainstay. We can offer to work with the above mentioned to make web based courses more accessible to us.

There is no doubt about it; we have no choice in the matter and if we have a hope and Prayer of being able to have access to online education and distance learning courses, we must speak up now. Education is one of the cornerstones of society and we as blind persons have every right to be able to access it like anyone else.

If we are shut out from web based courses then there goes another avenue for us to be treated equally. Time for us to identify ourselves.

I’m Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day and encouraging you to go out there and share our concerns with others. Visit www.acb.org to learn more.
