If you have trouble seeing web pages, the following information explains how to use your computer or web browser to make it easier to see and have web pages read aloud to you.
If you are blind, the following information explains how to use your computer, web browser, and screen reader assistive technology to navigate web pages and online services.
If you find a keyboard or mouse difficult to use, the following information explains how to use speech recognition software to navigate web pages and online services. Speech recognition software allows the user to move focus to an application object by voicing the object label name or the object type.
Object types include:
- Text Box
- List Box
Each of these object types is given a label name that is visible on the screen, and the voice user can say the name to move focus to that object. A screen, an application, or a file can be accessed by voicing the text in the Title Bar.
If there is an object or many objects on a screen without labels, then the user can voice an object type which will number all objects of that type on that screen. For example, voicing “link” would number all links that are on the visible screen, and then a specific link can then be accessed by choosing the number desired. Voicing “checkbox,” “radio button, “text box, etc., will operate in the same manner.
If the screen design does not allow moving focus by voicing a label or an object type, then the speech recognition software may provide a utility to move the mouse pointer in discrete steps or continuously. Users should try combinations of these methods to determine what best meets an individual’s needs.

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).
The following information explains how to use captioning for video on demand and both live and recorded webinars. For a video on demand, click the link to start the video playing. Next, click on the Closed Captioning (CC) button to activate the captioning feature. For some videos and webinars, open captions are used. In these cases, the captioning feature cannot be turned off.
