The experience with the Discover 508 solution was much more intuitive and streamlined, giving a person with vision loss the ability to complete each task as effectively and efficiently as his or her sighted peers...
Discover 508 offers a rich and unique experience for those with vision loss, allowing users to:
- complete forms easily and quickly
- use text-to-speech capabilities to complete forms
- work with popular text-to-speech products, including JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver for McIntosh and Window-Eyes
- work with popular browsers
- easily go in and out of usability mode
After experiencing the significant differences between SharePoint OOTB and Discover 508, we highly recommend that organizations using SharePoint consider adding Discover 508 to their environment to enable their visually and cognitively impaired workers to utilize all of the great collaborative features of SharePoint.
