Optimization to satisfy your needs
One of the main challenges of the virtual environment, especially for people with visual impairments, is the fact that it’s often presented exclusively in textual form. However, after proper adjustments, the “eye-input” can be transformed into an “ear-output” and you can step over this limitation.
Listen to what the UI has to say
If you find it difficult to read digital text, there is a simple solution – you can have it converted to audio with the help of so-called text-to-speech readers. These software tools (which are also a native part of the OS) will read out the content of the page for you, as well as where you currently are to help you with orientation, so with headphones on your ears, you’ll be able to take care of your printing task by following MyQ’s web UI’s voice navigation.
Gaining control with a keyboard
Having to rely on a tiny mouse cursor as the only guide to control what’s going on the screen when you can’t properly see it or operate the mouse can be almost impossible. To make things easier, you can browse through the MyQ X web UI using a much more stable peripheral – your keyboard. Simply click the arrows to navigate through text, or the TAB key to switch between windows or fields, and even turn on the text reader to sail safely through the digital sea.
There are many aspects that come into play when making digital content accessible, and you can read about them in this article.
