Goog Docs.jpg

Most modern operating systems (Windows, Mac, Chrome, etc.) provide features that allow for adjustment and customization of the settings to meet vision, hearing, mobility, language, and learning needs.

Although each OS offers different options, some features that are common across most operating systems include:

  • The ability to customize the keyboard. Some features include the ability to use the keyboard to control the mouse, allow for pressing one key at a time in place of multiple key combinations and being able to change the length of time it takes for a keystroke to be registered.

  • The ability to customize what is displayed. This includes being able to change the contrast, font size, font style, the size of the icons and other display features.

  • The ability to enable visual alerts for those who can’t hear auditory alerts.

  • Magnification for the visually impaired.
