Some small changes to your computer settings can make a big difference. Here is a list of simple changes that can be made to your computer to make screen information easier to see.
Within the windows control panel you can alter the settings for your mouse pointer on screen. There are a huge number of choices with different size pointers, colours, shapes and it is worth experimenting with these to find one that works well for you. There are other features which can be enabled to make following and finding the mouse pointer easier. Mouse trails leave a trail behind the mouse as you move it and pointer locator gives a visual indication of the mouse position when you press the control (Ctrl) key.
There are a number of colour schemes which can be found within the display settings that offer higher contrast, larger fonts and clearer text. These can then be further customized with your own colour choices and font sizes.
Microsoft Magnifier & Narrator
Windows has two basic programs to help people with a vision loss access their computer. These programs are free and do not include the more advanced features that are available from commercial products.
Microsoft magnifier uses a portion of the screen to show a magnified image of your mouse pointer or where you are typing. You can customize the amount of magnification and which area of the screen you want to use for the magnification image.
Microsoft narrator is a basic screen reading program which reads out screen information and echoes key presses using synthetic speech.
