Accessibility

The Web is fundamentally designed to work for all people, whatever their hardware, software, language, location, or ability. When the Web meets this goal, it is accessible to people with a diverse range of hearing, movement, sight, and cognitive ability.

Here we provide a list of alternative software that can be used to help getting a better experience.

Software for improved accessibility

Screen Readers

Software that processes content on the desktop and in web browsers, and converts it to others forms such as text-to-speech and Braille. Screen readers typically provide other functions such as shortcut keys, different modes for processing content and interacting with it, and the ability to highlight the text that is being read aloud.

Screen Magnifiers

Software used primarily by people with partial sight to enlarge the content to make it easier to see. Some screen magnifiers provide text-to-speech and other functionality.

Voice Recognition

Software that recognizes the human voice and can be used to dictate text or to issue commands to operate the computer (sometimes called "speech input" or "voice command").

Operating systems

Most commonly used operating systems for computers and mobiles come with accessibility features.
