You can stream media from many different services, some of which will have audio description. For this article, we will primarily focus on watching items available using Prime as other streaming services do not follow the conventions of the operating system. For example, Netflix seems to have its own screen reader that takes over when in the Netflix app, while YouTube uses a Web interface through the Web browser on the system. For this reason, setting up audio description and even navigation can vary from app to app. Note that for an app such as Netflix, all the context you would need to operate it successfully is presented as you interact with the app.
I visited two of these sites, Virginia and Ohio, and found both to be relatively easy to navigate using JAWS 2018. You will need to supply your name, address, date of birth, and Social Security number. If you plan to make contributions from a bank account, you will need the account number and the bank's routing number. (The routing number is a nine-digit number that appears on checks associated with the account. Alternatively, a simple phone call to your bank can get you the routing number.) You will be asked to check wither or not you have a disability that occurred before age 26, and whether or not you are receiving Social Security benefits. If you are receiving benefits, that fact serves as your certification of eligibility. You will be asked a series of questions to indicate your disability and, if you did not check that you are receiving benefits, you will need to supply the name and address of a physician to certify your disability. It's a pretty straightforward process, and completely accessible. Approval takes only a day or two. 1e1e36bf2d
