Have your computer read webpages aloud

Most modern operating systems are capable of text to speech voice synthesizing. This allows you to have your computer read entire webpages or selected text on your screen out loud to you.

For Windows, hold the Ctrl key and press the Escape key, then type "narrator" and then press the Enter key.
Then follow these instructions.

For Mac OS X, click the Apple menu in the top-left corner of your screen and go to "System Preferences", then choose "Dictation & Speech", then click "Text to Speech". Check the "Speak selected text when the key is pressed" checkbox.

Increase the font size on any webpage

Most modern web browsers are capable of increasing/decreasing font sizes while on a webpage. For detailed instructions please see the WCAG documentation page.

To increase the font size, hold the Ctrl key (Command key on a Macintosh) and press the + (plus) key.

To decrease the font size, hold the Ctrl key (Command key on a Macintosh) and press the - (minus) key.

To revert to the default font size, hold the Ctrl key (Command key on a Macintosh) and press the 0 (zero) key.

You can also set font-sizes universally for all pages that you visit in some browsers.

For Internet Explorer, press the "Alt" key on your keyboard. A new menu will appear below the address bar, click "View" and select "Text Size".

For Safari, click the "Safari" menu in the top-left corner of your screen, then select "Preferences". Then click "Advanced" and check the "Never use font sizes smaller than" checkbox under "Accessibility". Set this to your liking.

For Chrome, click the "Menu" icon at the top-right of your window (3 horizontal lines) and then select "Settings". Scroll down and click "Show advanced settings". Scroll down to "Web content" and adjust to your liking.

For Firefox, click the "Menu" icon at the top-right of your window (3 horizontal lines) and then select "Preferences". Select "Content" from the left-sidebar. The "Fonts & Colors" section can be adjusted to your liking.

Zoom content on your screen

Most modern operating systems are capable of zooming your entire screen. This may be a good alternative if increasing font sizes alone is not sufficient.

For Windows, click the "Start" menu in the bottom-left corner of your screen and then go to "All Programs", then "Accessories", then "Ease of Access" and then click "Magnifier". Click the "Options" button and then move the slider to adjust the zoom increment.

For Mac OS X, click the Apple menu in the top-left corner of your screen and go to "System Preferences", then choose "Accessibility", then click "Zoom". You can assign keyboard shortcuts or trackpad gestures.
