How to use assistive technologies

Many web browsers have features that allow them to be used with assistive technologies designed for people with disabilities. Screen-readers allow visually impaired people to navigate the Web. Voice browsers give spoken Web access. Screen magnifiers, voice recognition programs, and many other assistive technologies can be used to enhance the user's experience on the Web site.

There are basic setup steps for screen readers, and there are specific key combinations for keyboard navigation that can enhance your web browsing experience. The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) website contains a collection of helpful pointers to information about alternative browsing methods.
