|A Guide for Students and Professionals
David Kingsbury, Assistive Technology Instructor at The Carroll Center for the Blind, lays out the key steps for preparing professional-looking Word documents using the two most popular PC-based screen reader programs: JAWS and NVDA. Particular attention is devoted to formatting requirements of the three most commonly used academic style guides: APA, MLA, and the Chicago Manual of Style. Among the topics covered: using ribbon menus; font, paragraph, and margin settings; adding headers that adhere to academic style guide requirements; headings and styles; constructing tables; managing citations and bibliographies; and tools for proofreading and review. An appendix with a list of keystrokes is included for convenient reference. You can also download a set of files with practice exercises to hone your skills.
