In the continuing efforts to improve our service for people with disabilities, two software programs designed to aid the blind and visually impared people, have been recently bought and installed:
JAWS Screen Reader:
A professional software that reads information on the screen and transfers it to speech. JAWS program provides functional keyboard commands in order to simplify the use of common programs, document editing, webpage reading, and more.
A screen enlarger for visually impaired people. The program enables the enhancement and enlargement of the whole screen or parts of it with the use of various tools.
These programs are installed on the following library computers:
Judaica and Israel Reading Room (Floor 1) - Computer no. 7
General Reading Room (Floor 1) - Computer no. 2
Reference Desk (Lobby) - Computer no. 5
Priority use of those computers will be given to visually impaired people.
