This is the BOSMA Enterprises and BOSMA Rehabilitation Center Assistive Technology news site. It is the intention of the developers of this website (BOSMA AT staff) to make it accessible to everyone. Screenreader users have a combo box that drops down a list of all articles. When the user goes down this list and taps Enter on an item, that article and web links comes up without showing all of the categories on the home page--this allows for very precise and expedient use of the screenreader. When using the combo box to move to an article, remember to use a key command such as Alt left arrow to move backward through the web pages until this home page is reached. There are a set of Article links on the left side of the page which take you directly to posted items which usually have links to specific websites concerning that category. Use the search box to type in the name of a product such as "jaws," or a category such as "screenreader" and then tap the Enter key to display articles about devices or programs in that area. If you type in a category item such as "screen enlarger," a set of links will come up for all items in that category. Just above the links is an area containing radio buttons for searching for "All words, Any words, Exact Phrase," and another set of radio buttons containing five items, including an "Articles" radio button. There is also a combo box that can be used to select an item such as Newest, Oldest, Popular, Alphabetical and Category. To refine your search, move to the "Articles" radio button after you have submitted the search word, and then tap the Enter key one time. You will now have fewer, and more precise links regarding the item for which you are searching. You can also type in a generic word such as "camera" and tap Enter one time. Links to all articles containing the word you typed will appear. The "BOSMA ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY NEWS" link takes you back to this home page. There is also a "Home" link on all article pages which will take you back to this page. If you click on a category item in a category with multiple items there will appear just below the links for that item "Prev" and "Next" buttons--these buttons will allow you to move through that category, with the last page of that category showing only the "Prev" button. All other links will take you to a page with a description of that product, and in most cases web links to where you can read more about the item, and web links for items such as user manuals, extra add-ons such as voices, or other items--each page has specific links for that selected product. When you are finished reading a page, and possibly going to the different product/item links, either click the left arrow at the top left of the web page, or hold Alt and tap the left arrow, or tap the backspace key to move back one page at a time.
Categories include, but are not limited to: Accessible Books, Android, Appendix, Apple, Braille, CCTV, Chrome, Key Commands, Linux, Medical, Mobility, Money, Scanning to Read, Screen Enlargers, Screenreaders, Suites, Talking Tools and Typing.
At the bottom of the page are three BOSMA icons: The first icon takes you to the general BOSMA website, the second takes you to the BOSMA Programs website, and the third one takes you to the BOSMA Products website.
