Web Accessibility Help
There are actions you can take to adjust your web browser to make your web experience more
I am blind or can’t see very well
If you have trouble seeing web pages, the US Social Security Administration offers these tips for
optimizing your computer and browser to improve your online experience.
Use your computer to read web pages out loud
Use the keyboard to navigate screens
Increase text size
Magnify your screen
Change background and text colors
Make your mouse pointer more visible (Windows only)
I find a keyboard or mouse hard to use
If you find a keyboard or mouse difficult to use, speech recognition software such as Dragon®
Naturally Speaking may help you navigate web pages and online services. This software allows
the user to move focus around a web page or application screen through voice controls.
I am deaf or hard of hearing
If you are deaf or hard of hearing, there are several accessibility features available to you.
Transcripts: A text transcript is a text equivalent of audio information that includes spoken
words and non-spoken sounds such as sound effects.
Captioning: A caption is a transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is
synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally rendered visually by being
superimposed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, and
anyone who cannot hear the audio (e.g., when in a crowded room). Learn how to turn captioning
on and off on YouTube.
Volume controls: Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has volume control features. Each
video and audio service has additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device’s volume
controls and your media players’ volume controls to optimize your listening experience.
