I would like to commend Donna Jodhan of Sterling Creations for her valuable contribution to the CNIB?s Web Accessibility Review of the Psychiatric Patient Advocacy Office (PPAO) website. The PPAO provides advocacy services to individual patients, addresses facility-based or provincial systemic issues impacting on patients’ rights, rights advice services, public and health care professional education through speaking engagements, publishing reports and media releases. In order to ensure that all Ontarians had complete access to their information and services provided through their website, the PPAO contracted the CNIB to review the accessibility of their website from the perspective of blind and visually impaired users. The CNIB chose to partner with Sterling Creations because of Donna Jodhan’s long history and expertise in the area of accessible technology.
Donna played a key role in managing the usability test portion of the project. Through intuitive testing design and thorough, in-depth interviewing of test subjects, Donna effectively captured the blind and visually impaired user experience of the PPAO website. Her valuable insight into accessibility issues was the foundation of many of the recommendations presented in the final report to the PPAO. Based on the report, the PPAO has made several positive changes to their website to enhance not only the accessibility but also the usability of the website for blind or visually impaired consumers.
Sterling Creations provides service in a professional manner and deliverables of high quality. I would highly recommend Donna Jodhan and Sterling Creations to any organization whose objective it is to provide accessible, inclusive products and services for their consumers.

Office for Disability Issues (ODI) of Social Development Canada (SDC) is managing a five year project which aims at setting up web-based interactive networks of persons having common interests, for example, researchers, organizational leaders etc. In order to ensure that the web-based collaborative tool we will use is W3C compliant and accessible to persons experiencing various barriers, we ran some detailed tests on three different tools. Including persons with various disabilities in these tests ensures measuring true accessibility.
Extensive researching and testing of the three collaborative tools was done, whereby test plans, test guides, surveys and test environments were created to coincide with each collaborative tool. Testing was then organized with selected participants; Donna being one of them. Donna tested the software tools by communicating, collaborating, posting messages, checking, exchanging and managing information within all the main areas of each collaborative tool. By following the Test Guide, she looked at what she could perform and achieve with each tool and determined if the tools met the needs of people with her disability. This was completed by moving electronically from area to area in the software and working within each. The tools directed Donna to a survey of questions that she completed as well as adding comments and suggestions relating to the functionality, accessibility and user-friendliness of each software tool tested.
Donna’s participation in testing the accessibility of the software tolls was one of utmost professionalism. Her testing, with the use of the test guides, was very meticulous and extensive. the testing phases and survey documents were completed not only on time but with detailed, knowledgeable insight of her analysis of the collaborative tools. We would certainly consider working with Donna in the future.
