Screen Readers with Magnification Facilities: 

Brief description: 
A screen reader will read out the text on your computer screen. Varying from a simple text document to a complex web page. 
Some screen readers even give you the choice of male or female voice synthesizers, which have greatly improved in recent years.

Screen options:

Choose the settings that will suit your requirements for example changing your computers screen background colour from white to black and setting the text colour as white.  These colours suit me, but you may choose different colours.

Magnification levels: 

Increase the magnification level to suit your needs; with a magnifier screen reader you can enlarge the screen text to any size you require.  Zoom in on images such as photos and pictures, enlarging them so you can see every detail. 

Regardless of your sight condition, we have a screen reader that is suitable for you.

Who needs a mouse! 

A mouse is not much use to a non-sighted computer user, so we use the keyboard instead of the mouse.  Using the keyboard has certain advantages over a mouse user; mouse users have to perform several actions to complete a task.  Moving the mouse pointer to a menu then clicking the mouse pointer on the menu to open the options. Then moving the mouse pointer onto the required option and clicking the mouse. 

Using shortcut keys on the keyboard you can achieve the same results as a mouse user, by using keystroke commands.  The commands are simple and what might take several moves with a mouse can be achieved with one keystroke.
