Accessibility Section 508 – Bonus Topic 3 of 12 Days of FileMaker 12 Web Series

Tuesday, May 29th, marked Bonus Topic #3 of FM Academy’s 12 Days of FileMaker 12 Web Series. Accessibility Section 508, hosted by Chad Sager at IT Solutions summary: FileMaker Pro 12 adds new accessibility features that make it much easier for the blind and visually impaired to use FileMaker Pro. Our FileMaker Pro solutions often show us how to use them. New tools in FileMaker Pro 12 allow developers to make your applications “show” blind and visually impaired users how to use through screen readers. Whether you’re using FileMaker Pro to build an application for use in schools, businesses or distributing as a standalone application, we explored how to leverage the screen reading services built into today’s modern operating systems such as OS X, Windows and iOS. If you missed the Webinar, and would like to watch these examples of Server Performance, the video is available on FileMaker Academy’s YouTube Channel.
