Verbal View of Office Ribbon Bar
Verbal View from APH is a series of comprehensive tutorials covering a variety of computer software topics designed for students and professionals who are visually impaired and blind.
The programs in the Microsoft Office® 2007 Suite work better together because they now share a common file format and a common user interface. The interface is called the Ribbon, and it has been the source of frustration and confusion to many blind computer users. With the information in this tutorial, the blind computer user will understand and confidently interact with this important new interface.
Offered on your choice of either a CD-ROM or a National Library Service (NLS) Player-compatible flash cartridge, this tutorial comes in multiple digital formats including DAISY, html, Microsoft Word®, and text.
The DAISY version plays on any Digital Talking Book player that supports DAISY 3.0 including APH's Book Port™ Plus, BookSense Pocket, Victor Reader® Stream, and the National Library Service DTB player. The CD includes a DAISY reading program, APH's Book Wizard Reader®, that you may use to read the book on a Windows PC.

Note: The Verbal View Tutorial Series emphasizes the use of the keyboard. Some of the topics omitted from most books are discussed at length because they greatly benefit blind users.
