If you need further help in making your computer easier to use, AbilityNet and the BBC have developed some tutorials which tell you how to customise your computer to give you a better experience when using the web. For example, you can find out how to:
- change how information is shown on your screen, to get more on, or to see content more clearly
- change colours and fonts, a good idea if you have a visual impairment and need more contrast
- adapt the mouse, for example, to slow it down, make the pointer bigger, or if you are left-handed
- change a variety of keyboard settings, including the rate at which the cursor blinks.
Go to My Web My Way on the BBC Website to see the tutorials.
