Improving Accessibility

--

Internet Explorer

  1. On the Tools menu in Internet Explorer, click Internet Options, and then click the Advanced tab.

  2. Change the following settings as needed:

Move system caret with focus/selection changes

If you use a screen reader, you might want to select this check box. Some screen readers or screen magnifiers use the system caret to determine which area of the screen to read or magnify.

Always expand alt text for images

Select this check box if you rely on alternate (ALT) text instead of viewing the actual pictures (that is, you've cleared the Show pictures check box). This ensures that the text is not cut off if the amount of text is larger than the image area.

Use smooth scrolling and Enable page transitions

If you use a screen magnification or screen reader program, you might want to clear these check boxes. If you use a voice recognition program, and you experience recognition errors during smooth scrolling and transitions, you might also want to clear these check boxes.

Show pictures, Play animations, and Play videos

If you have low vision, you might want to clear these check boxes to improve performance. If you are sensitive to screen flashing, you might also want to clear these check boxes.

Play sounds

If you have cognitive disabilities, you might want to clear this check box to prevent distractions. If you are blind, you might want to clear this check box or selectively download sounds so that they do not interfere with a screen reader reading text aloud.

Print background colours and images

If you have low vision, you might want to clear this check box to improve print legibility.

To change how Web page colours are displayed

    1. On the Tools menu in Internet Explorer, click Internet Options.
    2. On the General tab, click Colours.
    3. Change the settings as needed.
