Digital Accessibility & Assistive Technology
Digital accessibility refers to how well people with visual, hearing, motor and cognitive challenges can access our digital content. Cloud Cover IT believes that web content should be accessible to everyone and make every attempt in making its content accessible for all.
Here’s some tips for accessing this website:
Some accessibility features are built into computer operating systems and web browsers. Try the following methods to simplify your web browsing experience.
Magnify the Screen
Many web browsers allow you to zoom in on web pages using simple keyboard controls. The magnifier allows you to focus on specific parts of the screen, enlarging the text and other page components:
- Windows: press Ctrl and + to zoom in on a web page (Ctrl and – to zoom out).
- Mac: press Cmd and + to zoom in on a Web page (Cmd and – to zoom out).
Make the Computer Speak Aloud
Most computers offer text-reading features, but they can be limited in what they offer.
Windows offers a built-in screen-reader called Windows Narrator, and certain browsers such as Microsoft Edge offer the ability to read the text on pages. Windows Narrator can be accessed by pressing Win+Ctrl+N. A guide from Microsoft on using Narrator is available online here.
For Mac users, VoiceOver is available as a standard part of the OS X operating system.
