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.

 

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 isNVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access). The two most common commercial screen readers areJAWS and Window-Eyes.

 

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