Most applications contain hotkeys to improve navigation and provide information. On many screens there is a continue button that allows you to go to the next page or a previous button to return to the prior page.

Other keyboard commands, hotkeys or access keys will vary based upon your type and version of browser.

You will find a list of these commands in the Help section of your browser. Locate the Help feature on the Menu bar of your browser or by using your keyboard F1 function key.

Magnify Your Screen

If enlarging the text is not enough to make the page easily readable, the next step is to magnify your screen. Recent versions of Windows include magnification software, which will allow you to increase text to a very large size.

The Windows magnifier is limited in its functionality, however, so many visually impaired users find they need a more sophisticated magnification software program. Here is a list of screen magnifier products:

Make Your Mouse Pointer More Visible

The mouse pointer is sometimes hard to see. A Windows feature can help you locate it. (Some mouse drivers or software may not have this feature). Not all versions of Windows behave the same and you may need to refer to Windows help pages for further assistance.

Finding your Cursor in Windows:

  1. Click on the ‘Start’ button or press the ‘Windows’ logo key or press ‘Ctrl’ + ‘Esc’.
  2. Click on ‘Control Panel’ or press the keyboard ‘C’.
  3. Make sure you are in ‘Classic View.’ If ‘Pick a category’ is the main title on the page and under the ‘Control Panel’ title is ‘Switch to Classic View,’ click this view (you are currently in ‘Category View’) by clicking on the link or press tab to select ‘Switch to Classic View’ and press ‘Enter.’
  4. In ‘Classic View’ double click ‘Mouse’ or repeatedly press the ‘M’ key until ‘Mouse’ is highlighted and press ‘Enter.’
  5. The ‘Mouse Properties’ page should be displayed.
  6. Click on the ‘Pointer Options tab’ or press ‘Ctrl’ + ‘Tab’ until the ‘Pointer Options’ tab is activated.
  7. Click the checkbox ‘Show location of pointer when I press the CTRL key’ or press ‘Alt’+’S’ on the keyboard which puts a tick in the box.
  8. Click ‘OK’ or press ‘Enter’ to confirm and exit mouse properties. Now pressing ‘Ctrl’ will give a visual clue by surrounding the pointer with circles.

Increase Text Size

With almost all modern web browsers you can hold down the Ctrl key (Command key on a Macintosh) and press the + (plus) key to increase text size or – (minus) key to reduce text size.

The Web Accessibility Initiative site provides instructions for other browsers and operating systems.
