I can’t see the computer well
Unless you use a very large computer monitor, computer screens can be hard to use.
There is a lot of technology to help people with little or no sight use a computer.
Computers include some things that will help:
- Screen readers – this is software that reads out what is on the computer screen.
- Zoom controls – this makes things on your computer screen larger.
There is also a lot of software and equipment equipment that you can get that will make your computer easier to use. We have included some of them in this section.
