|We are continuously working to improve the accessibility of content on our website. Below, you’ll find a few recommendations to help make your browsing experience more accessible:
If you have trouble seeing web pages, the US Social Security Administration offers these tips for optimizing your computer and browser to improve your online experience.
• Use the keyboard to navigate screens
• Increase text size
• Magnify your screen
• Change background and text colors
• Make your mouse pointer more visible (Windows only)
Voice Recognition Controls
If you are looking for mouse and keyboard alternatives, speech recognition software such as Dragon Naturally Speaking may help you navigate web pages and online services. This software allows the user to move focus around a web page or application screen through voice controls. If you are deaf or hard of hearing, there are several accessibility features available to you.
If you are visually impaired website reading software can help read the website content to you. Website reading software like ChromeVox, which is an addon extension to the chrome website browser can help. There are also other website readers that work with a computers operating system (OS) that provide more universal coverage outside of website browsing.
Closed captioning provides a transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally visually displayed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard of hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio due to noisy environments. Most of our video content includes captions. Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.
Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has volume control features. Each video and audio service has its own additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device’s volume controls and your media players’ volume controls to optimize your listening experience.
If the recommendations above do not meet your needs, we invite you to give us a call.

Dr. Ronda Trotman
I have been practicing a full scope of general dentistry in the Portland metro area for over 24 years. I attended OHSU School of Dentistry, graduating with High Honors in 1996. I have a 37-year-old daughter, who is a Veterinarian in Chicago, and a 33-year-old, recently married, son here in Portland. Yes, I’m hoping for a grandchild in the next couple of years!
As an avid skier, you will find me either on Mt Hood, or Mt. Bachelor with my husband most weekends once the snow flies. We have 2 beautiful Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs that pretty much rule the house. They think they are lap dogs in spite of weighing 84, and 95 lbs. respectively. I have a nice collection of bonsai trees, so the non-winter months I am frequently out on the patio, or in the garden.
