SRT - The CSB Screen Reader Training Website

Skip to main content

Welcome to SRT, the California School for the Blind Screen Reader Training Website.

This is the place to learn how to use your computer or mobile device with a screen reader.

A screen reader is a type of assistive technology that is primarily used by people with visual impairments. It converts the text of screen elements into speech or can be output as braille on a refreshable braille display.

This site was produced to provide training materials to teachers, parents, and users of a wide variety of screen readers that run on current computers and mobile devices.

It is intended to be used as a way to learn how to use or teach the use of common screen readers. By simply turning on a screen reader and following the instructions on the page, you can learn how to use this type of assistive technology.

With that being said, these pages are living documents that can grow as time and technology change.

For the best results, open this webpage on the device that you would like to learn to use with a screen reader, locate the link above that fits what you would like to learn, and then press that link to begin.
