General web accessibility information
There are many tools that people with a disability can use to assist them in accessing the Internet:
These tools manipulate the keyboard or mouse:
- Refreshable Braille displays - A small Braille display that a blind person can use to read the screen line by line
- Joysticks or Trackballs - Pointers that manipulate the mouse onscreen for people with motor disabilities
- Alternative keyboards - Keyboards with 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:
- Screen readers - Programs such as JAWS and Window-Eyes that convert a website 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).
