Accessibility Technology

Individuals living with a disability use assistive technologies such as the following to enable and assist web browsing:

Screen reader software, which can read out, using synthesised speech, either selected elements of what is being displayed on the monitor (helpful for users with reading or learning difficulties), or which can read out everything that is happening on the computer (used by blind and vision impaired users).

Screen magnification software, which enlarges what is displayed on the computer monitor, making it easier to read for vision impaired users.
