Test Heading ARIA Level Two
Working with Robert
I am very fortunate to be working with Robert right now, a friend with multiple disabilities who is teaching me much. Together, we work to ensure websites are accessible, at least in terms of using Dragon Naturally Speaking. It's the assistive technology he relies on to get through his day. I find using and understanding the Dragon actually more difficult than using screenreaders, as a user is subject to both visual cues as well as HTML hierarchy on the website.
We are extremely grateful to Robert Beasey, and the accessibility testing he provides for the website. To the right, Robert is testing a form for possible use as a survey to USFSP students

A Plugin for a friend
A person who relies on the visual map presented by this interface is set adrift.
This is not a dialog that enables easy closure. An excerpt from Shneiderman's "Eight Golden Rules of Interface Design" follows:
Design dialog to yield closure. Sequences of actions should be organized into groups with a beginning, middle, and end. The informative feedback at the completion of a group of actions gives the operators the satisfaction of accomplishment, a sense of relief, the signal to drop contingency plans and options from their minds, and an indication that the way is clear to prepare for the next group of actions.
Excerpt: 40% of respondents use Zoom Text
"Excerpt: It is of interest that so many users enlarge web content, but primarily for readability when readability is not generally impacted by a motor disability."
Excerpt: "Reduced amount of eye movement needed...."
"Excerpt: Sequences of actions should be organized into groups with a beginning, middle, and end."

Notes Setting Up WordPress with JAWS and NVDA
Screenshots of languages below were not announced by JAWS (Version 16, Tested on IE, using Desktop). The languages with the Chinese characters, i.e., Japanese, Chinese long-form and short-form were announced by NVDA (2014.3), but only as "Chinese Characters" (Please note the testing was done with English selected as the language to run. Will retest with other settings). NVDA read the Korean language correctly. In the case of my_MM, it read the first two numbers correctly and then added a third number that did not match the display.
