There are many ways you can customize Windows to make your computer more accessible.
Accessibility features have been built in to Windows since the introduction of Windows 95. These features are useful for individuals who have difficulty typing or using a mouse, have moderately impaired vision, or are deaf or hard-of-hearing. The features can be installed during Setup, or you can add them later from your Windows installation disks.
The specific features available, and whether they are built-in or must be obtained separately, depend on the operating system you are using.
Step by Step Guides
Microsoft offers a series of step by step guides that introduce you to some of the most commonly used accessibility features and show you how to use them to customize your computer. The guides provide detailed procedures on how to accomplish the customization, generally by selecting options or changing settings. This information is presented in a side-by-side format so that you can see at a glance how to use the mouse, the keyboard, or a combination of both.
