Tips for Browsing

Some accessibility features are built into computer operating systems and web browsers. Try the following methods to simplify your web browsing experience.

Magnify the Screen

Many web browsers allow you to zoom in on web pages using simple keyboard controls. The magnifier allows you to focus on specific parts of the screen, enlarging the text and other page elements.

  • For Windows operating systems, press Ctrl and + to zoom in on a web page (Ctrl and  to zoom out).

  • For Mac operating systems, press Cmd and + to zoom in on a Web page (Cmd and  to zoom out).

Customize the Mouse Pointer

You can customize a computer mouse pointer in several ways. For example, you can slow down the speed of the mouse pointer for easier handling. You can also change its appearance so that it contrasts more with the screen content.

Make the Computer Speak Aloud

Many computers have text-reading features, but they can be limited in what they offer. For example Windows Narrator reads only menus and dialogue boxes, but not blocks of text. Windows Narrator is available in Windows XPWindows VistaWindows 7, or Windows 8.

For Microsoft Windows, software is available that offers more advanced screen-reading capabilities (both free and commercial). A popular free and open source screen reader is NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access). The two most common commercial screen readers are JAWS and Window-Eyes.

For Mac users, VoiceOver is available as a standard part of the OS X operating system.
