Accessibility Tips For Windows 10 Users
It can be benificial for some to zoom into the screen or browser in order to better view websites. We offer a few tips in order to make this easier for Windows 10 users:
How to zoom your screen on a computer:
- To adjust the size of text, apps, and other items, select the Start button, then select Settings > Ease of Access > Display . Use the slider under Make text bigger to make just the text on your screen larger. Or, select an option from the drop-down menu under Make everything bigger to change the size of everything on your screen.
- If there's not enough contrast between the elements on your screen, try using a high contrast theme. Select the Start button, then select Settings > Ease of Access > High contrast , and switch on the toggle under Turn on high contrast.
- To make the apps in your Start menu appear larger, right-click (or tap and hold) the app tile you want to resize, select Resize, and then choose the size that you want.
- Windows can also show visual feedback when you touch the screen. Select the Start button, then select Settings > Ease of Access > Cursor & pointer , and then select the toggle under Show visual feedback around the touch points when I touch the screen.
Hear text read aloud with Narrator:
- Narrator reads aloud the text on your PC screen. It also describes events such as notifications and calendar appointments, which lets you use your PC without a display.
- To start or stop Narrator, press Windows logo key + Ctrl + Enter. To see all Narrator commands, press Caps Lock + F1 after you open Narrator. If your device has a touchscreen, tap it three times with four fingers.
Using Scan Mode:
- Scan Mode can help you navigate apps and webpages more quickly. To turn Scan Mode on or off, press Caps lock + Spacebar.
- When Scan Mode is turned on, press the up and down arrow keys to move to the next or previous line of text in an app or webpage. Press the right and left arrow keys to move to the next or previous character. To activate an item such as a button, press the Spacebar.
- You can also navigate by word or paragraph. Press Ctrl + Left arrow and Ctrl + Right arrow to move by word. Press Ctrl + Up arrow and Ctrl + Down arrow to move by paragraph.
Distinguish colors easily
Boost contrast or get rid of color entirely - whether you have colorblindness, light sensitivity, or a visual preference, with color filters you can customize your screen's color palette.
If it's hard to see what's on the screen, apply a color filter. Color filters change the color palette on the screen and can help you distinguish between things that differ only by color.
To use a color filter:
Select Start > Settings > Ease of Access > Color filters.
Switch on the toggle under Turn on color filters.
Then, select a color filter from the menu. Try each filter to see which one suits you best.
Note: To get to color filter settings in previous versions of Windows 10, select Start > Settings > Ease of Access > Color & high contrast.
