What's in the new visual toolkit?
The visual toolkit replaces the “reader” in the built-in toolbar. It provides new functionality to help with visual or cognitive challenges.
Adjust text using these tools:
- Text Size. Enlarge web copy for improved readability and usability for people with low-vision.
- Contrast. Improve readability—especially for people with color blindness. You choose the contrast between the background and text colors.
- Text Spacing. Change the distance between words and lines of text. This improves readability for people with low-vision or people with cognitive and/or learning disabilities.
- Change Font. Change the font of the text on the page to make it easier to read. This option includes a font intended to assist people with dyslexia.
Customize controls using these tools:
- Big Cursor. Enlarge the cursor display for easier tracking. This improves usability for people with low-vision.
- Keyboard Focus/Highlights. Draw a colorful box around and/or highlight buttons and links. This makes them easier to find and select for people using a visual keyboard.
Increase focus and comprehension using these tools:
- Reading Guide. Use the cursor to move a horizontal line like a bookmark to underline sentences as you read.
- Emphasize. Blur out the majority of the page view with the cursor so you can focus on one line of text at a time.
Each of these features can be used individually or in combination. You pick and choose the features that are right for you.
