As a provider of services to the blind and visually impaired, we recognize the importance of accessibility in assisting our clients in achieving independence. The ease with which our clients can navigate WOWI's website using JAWS and other screen readers has been a significant factor in helping our clients achieve autonomy.

My colleagues and I are very pleased with the way WOWI staff is so accommodating to the accessibility needs of those people who are blind and visually impaired, even modifying specific web features to be user friendly to those relying on screenreading software. Kudos to WOWI for excellent flexibility and responsiveness.
—Tony Jorgensen, Training Manager, Lighthouse for the Blind
We like the WOWI because it assesses so many different aspects of the individual’s interests, aptitudes, and personality to generate career options. It is not timed so can be used for clients who read slower or have dexterity issues such as individuals with Cerebral Palsy (CP).
—Becki Hoff, Regional Administrator, North Dakota DVR
WOWI’s comprehensive assessment provides good career information and feedback to those we serve and fits in well with our agency’s goals. WOWI has become a very useful and easy to use tool in our toolbox I very much appreciate you making the WOWI administration process so user friendly. Rock On!
—Paul Reamer, Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor III, Alaska DVR
Screen readers empower users to hear content and navigate with a keyboard. This technology helps people who are blind or who have low vision to use information technology with the same level of independence as anyone else. Screen readers are also used by people with certain cognitive or learning disabilities, or users who simply prefer audio content over text.
The best choice for you will depends on the type of computer or smartphone that you have and the browser you prefer. Nearly all computers, tablets, and smartphones have a screen reader function built in. Popular programs are JAWS and NVDA for Windows computers, VoiceOver for the Mac and iPhone, and TalkBack on Android.
NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access) is a free screen reader for use with computers running on Windows.
