HELP WITH SEEING THE PAGE
If you are having issues viewing any written material you can make changes to most internet browsers, such as Internet Explorer or Safari, allow you to force the text on a web page to be the size and colour you want. Many operating systems also come with a built-in screen magnifier that allows you to enlarge a portion of the page to several times the original size.
HELP WITH YOUR KEYBOARD AND MOUSE
Lots of people think they can not work a computer because they can’t use a mouse, however it’s usually possible to do away with your mouse and use a keyboard instead.
If you can use a mouse but find it awkward, there are ways to make your mouse easier to use. You can change the settings on your computer or laptop.
