First Day….

Today was my first day at the Cedar Foundation. Well, i really enjoyed it. I was there for 2 hours. I was doing a demonstration with JAWS.

I showed the IT officer how to get to the desktop, switch to different windows, use Microsoft Word, how to select things, how to use the Keyboard Help, how to use the general help, how to speed up JAWS and how to use the internet. I also showed him a web browser called
Webbie
which i talked about in a previous entry.
He was very impressed. He wants me to go on work experience with him as it is related to social work.

I’m going back on Thursday. Can’t wait. Just would like to say thank you to the Cedar Foundation for having me!!!!!!!!!

Evaluating Websites For The Cedar Foundation

A couple of months ago, a group of young people, which i am a part of, were invited to
The Cedar Foundation
to evaluate websites on how user friendly, and attractive the websites were to young people. Well by the end of it, the people who organised it, were asking me how accessible they were. We discussed how accessible they were, and that was that.

Now, i’ve recently been asked to go back. This time, however, i’m purely evaluating websites for their accessibility. I don’t even know what websites i’ll be evaluating. I can’t wait. I’ll let you all know how i get on!!!! Wish me luck!!!!!

It was so sweet. I am sooo glad he is making so many new friends. It was really cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
