To provide input to your computer, you use a mouse, keyboard,
or your fingers on a touchscreen. To make input easier
if you have hearing, dexterity, or vision challenges, you can make
good use of a variety of accessibility settings in Windows 8.
For example, if you have trouble hearing, you can adjust the
volume of your system; all volume controls in software programs
and Internet apps are then set against that system volume level.
If you have vision challenges, you can control the contrast
setting on your screen and turn on a setting to make everything
Finally, if hand dexterity is a challenge, there are two features
you should check out. The first, caret browsing, is a setting
by which you can use your keyboard to navigate a webpage
rather than your mouse, if you find the keyboard easier to use. If
you prefer an entirely hands-off approach, you can also explore
a new means of input, Speech Recognition, to speak text and
instructions to your computer.
