Screen readers enable people with visual impairment (VI) to have equal access to written information both on computers and smartphones. [] Key Method First, we invest on developing websites, apps, and software programs by following web content accessibility guidelines to ensure accessibility. We than conduct research on compatibility of the websites, apps, and software programs with screen readers. Last, we inform about descriptions of the images by creating alternative texts.
