Access to Amateur Radio Handbooks
for Vision-Impaired Hams
This note is for vision-impaired amateur radio operators interested in the ARRL Handbook for Radio Communications and the ARRL Antenna Book. Recent print-editions of these well known references include a CD-ROM with the contents of the book plus supplemental information and software.
The PDF files on the CD-ROM can be displayed and magnified on a computer screen.
These PDF files are accessible with the JAWS screen reader, depending on the PDF reader you use. JAWS worked well in the FireFox PDF reader (built into the Mozilla FireFox browser), but not with the Sumatra PDF reader.
