How to Go About Making a Working-Without-Looking Course Accessible

First off, I have given careful consideration to course of this type and I truly believe that a course such as this can benefit the following types of persons. Busy professionals, busy moms, those who are blind and vision impaired, and it can also be used to help improve techniques for everyone.

The trick here is to make this course available in the most accessible manner and here are my suggestions:

  • In electronic formats that are readable; Word, Text, RTF, HTML, and accessible PDF.
  • It could also be made available in audible format but this may not be as effective and of course there is large print and regular print formats.

This course is aimed at helping to make tasks easier around the house and here is a sample of items that are included:

    Appliances, counters, cupboards, and pantry.
