Screen Reader Barriers for Virtual Teaching and Learning
taught by: Craig Edgley
This presentation will center on the accessibility barriers for screen reader usage from the virtual teaching and learning perspective. I will share my personal experiences working
with online learning and some helpful techniques that I have discovered along the way, as a teacher and a student working in virtual classrooms.
In the wake of the pandemic, many traditional brick and mortar schools have turned to virtual learning.
As a blind secondary mathematics teacher working with students who are also blind and as a blind college student finishing my Master's degree at Texas Tech University, I have gained a great deal of firsthand experience navigating the accessibility barriers of teaching and learning virtually. In this presentation I will share some of the accessibility barriers that I have encountered working with various online learning management systems, video conferencing platforms, and accessing electronic textbooks.
