Screen Reader Assistance for Visually Impaired

ClickBid is compatible with NVDA assistive technology allowing blind and vision-impaired people to access and interact with the ClickBid bidding site and landing page. This is an easy, intuitive, and comfortable experience to use, so they'll have a stress-free, enjoyable time using ClickBid's software. 


- The NVDA technology reads the 'Bid' button within the bidding site to read subsequent data including everything on the bidding site including the item title, item description, item exceptions, FMV, Current Bid, Starting Bid, and Menu Tab. 

- The Landing Page will read any text contained within the page. Any images that have any alt-text added will also be picked up through the screen reader.
