This article explains how to introduce a student - particularly a young student - to using a screen reader. Sharon demonstrates several fun activities and the few shortcut commands used to complete these activities. Included are sample lessons as well as keyboard shortcut resources. These activites can be done with any keyboard and screen reader, including JAWS, NVDA, Window-Eyes or VoiceOver. This article is intended for learning keyboard commands on a computer; however, the same activities could be done with a screen reader on a tablet paired with a Bluetooth keyboard.
