Physically Challenged

You don’t need a sticker on your car to have physical issues with using personal technology. We know from experience what it’s like. If you can’t see, hear, or type as well as you once did, seemingly rudimentary tasks like locating the mouse pointer can wreak havoc on your productivity.

There may be features on your computer or other device that can help. We’ll investigate those first. If they’re not enough, we’ll explore additional options. We’ll even suggest agencies where you can obtain further assistance should that be necessary.

We’re also working to make this website more accessible by investigating ways to make it more screen-reader and magnifier friendly and incorporating features that make it easy to enlarge type and play back pages as audio files. Stay tuned.

We can help you achieve the following goals:

  • Customize your mouse pointer’s speed, appearance, and color.
  • Set a readable font size.
  • Adjust your display colors.
  • Use screen magnifying software.
  • Use alternative keyboard settings to reduce accidental keystroke repition.
  • Locate and use accessibility settings on smartphones and other devices.
  • Learn to use third-party screen readers, magnifiers, and software that bundles both functions.
  • Find organizations that provide additional assistance.
