Dragon Naturally Speaking speech recognition software allows a user to move focus around a web page or application screen through voice controls. If you are deaf or hard of hearing, there are some accessibility features available to you.
If you are visually impaired, website reading software like ChromeVox can help read the website content to you. Website reading software like ChromeVox, which is an add-on extension to the Chrome website browser, can help. There are also other website readers that work with a computers operating system (OS) that provide more universal coverage outside of website browsing.
Closed captioning offers a transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is matched with the video and audio tracks. Captions are commonly visually presented over the video, which benefits individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing and anyone who cannot hear the audio because of loud environments. Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.
Most computers, tablets, or mobile device have volume control features, and each video and audio service has its own additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device’s volume controls and your media players’ volume controls to optimize your listening experience.
Many documents on our web pages are in ASCII or HTML format, which are accessible to people who use screen reading software and to those with other vision or mobility impairments. Generally, we use Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) to create pages and documents that are accessible to those users.
