Open Menu

This open menu page is designed to meet needs of blind screen reader users who are part of the Laurier and wider community. To make menu and website exploration faster and easier with a screen reader, all menu items are listed as headings and followed by brief descriptions of the destination page. We have learned this design also benefits a wider group of users, such as users who search pages (control + f), users who prefer browsing, or users who are new to university libraries.
