General Web Accessibility Information
There are many tools that people with a disability can use to assist to access the Internet. These tools are either hardware or software.
These tools manipulate the keyboard or mouse, because the person with a disability cannot use them. Examples are:
- Refreshable Braille displays – A small Braille display that a blind person can use to read the screen line by line.
- Joysticks / Trackballs – Pointers that manipulate the mouse onscreen for people with motor disabilities.
- Alternative keyboards – Keyboards that have limited keys for people with motor disabilities. These include keyboards manipulated by fingers and keyboards manipulated using a head-wand.
These tools change how a user interacts with the site. Examples are:
- Screen readers – Programs such as JAWS and Window-Eyes that convert a web site into a Braille display or read it in audio for people who are blind, visually impaired or have dyslexia.
- Screen Magnifiers – Programs that magnify sections of the screen for people with vision impairments. See Windows Screen Magnifier.
- Oversized cursors – Large cursors for people with vision impairments. See “Biggy” cursors.
- Onscreen keyboards – Keyboards for people with motor disabilities used in combination with switching devices. See On-screen keyboard.
- Programs that slow down applications for people with motor disabilities, for example CPU Killer (for Windows).
