Yahoo!’s (got to love that exclamation mark) Victor Tsaran talks about screen readers

This has been sitting on my “to view” list for a few weeks:

Victor Tsaran is an accessibility engineer at Yahoo! who focuses on developing best practices for the creation of websites that work well with screen readers. In this video, he provides an introduction to some of the things that work well in the world of screen readers and others that fare more poorly.

See the video: Victor Tsaran: An Introduction to Screen Readers over on Yahoo! video.

  1. Just watched this as well. I thought there was a bit too much rambling and the explanations were rather clumsy. Couldn’t really see where the focus was on the screen. A little user stylesheet would have aided that for demonstration purposes.

    But it’s still a great introduction…and you gotta love that Russian-sounding accent.

  2. So says Dennis

    Good idea, nice demo of a screenreader. But where’s the captioning?! Also, I had a problem with the play/pause button working correctly.
