"Windows and Mac computers have several built-in options to make computers more usable for people with disabilities. This presentation will cover options to adjust the keyboard, mouse, visual display, and system sounds. Assistive technologies provide alternatives to standard ways of interacting with the computer (keyboard, mouse, visual display). We will discuss some built-in assistive technologies in Windows and the Mac operating system, and briefly review types of assistive technologies which are available as third-party software and accessories."
