To assist visually-impaired users, ebrary can be displayed in a screen-readable, text-only mode that works with a user’s own text-to-speech program, such as JAWS.
To request this mode:
Step 1 – Ask a Librarian to contact email@example.com and request the screen-readable, text-only option for an individual user. They will need the user’s personal ebrary account username.
Step 2 – The user will then be able to activate the text-only mode as follows:
a) Go to your ebrary site and log in to your personal ebrary account
b) Click on the “My Settings” button at the top right of the ebrary page
c) Click “Edit Settings”, then under “Additional Settings” click “Enable Accessibility Mode”
d) Click “Save Changes”
e) Once those changes are made, anytime the user is signed in to their bookshelf account, all documents opened in QuickView will be viewed in the special screen-readable, text-only mode.
f) The user can then use QuickView in conjunction with JAWS or another text-to-speech program
