1. Links to 5 tools to  give you easier access

  2. Click here for Accessibility change options on an Apple Mac operating system.
  3. Most users with disabilities will need more advanced utility programs for daily use. Have a look at AbilityNet a UK Charity specialising in Technology to help people with disabilities.
  4. Or go to BBC my web, my way.
  5. Customize your Android device using ‘accessibility’ settings and apps. e.g. screen reader TalkBack: To interact with your device using touch and spoken feedback, in ‘settings’ go to ‘accessibility’ then ‘screen readers’ and turn on the TalkBack screen reader. TalkBack describes your actions and tells you about alerts and notifications. ‘Select to Speak’: If you want spoken feedback only at certain times, you can turn on Select to Speak. Then select items on your screen to hear them read or described aloud, or point the camera at something in the real world.
