How Do I Do That?

These high quality video tutorials are designed to be concise, informative and fully accessible to a blind or visually impaired computer user as all of the instructional content is available via audio.

To enable sighted trainers, teachers, friends, family, IT professionals, colleagues, and others to be able to better utilize Window-Eyes or to assist Window-Eyes users, the videos also contain special effects to help sighted individuals better understand how to interact with Window-Eyes as well as to visually highlight what the audio is describing on the computer screen. For example, when a hotkey combination is pressed, the video portion of the production will display the hotkey combination making it easier for sighted individuals to follow along with the tutorials.

The audio portion of How Do I Do That? is completely accessible to a blind user, and is designed to help a blind or visually impaired person easily follow along with each step of the tutorial. Typically, each How Do I Do That? production is less than ten minutes and typically focuses on one specific skill or concept. This free educational series will allow anyone who is interested to quickly find the skill they are interested in, and then learn about how to perform that skill by watching the step-by-step tutorial. Whenever possible, a text transcript of the tutorial is also provided to assist customers who cannot access the video or audio content.
