Have you ever wondered what kind of low vision options are already on my computer? How do I get to them from the login screen? Hi, my name is Vikki Vaughan and today we'll answer those questions. In this video, we talk about options that let us personalize the visual settings on our computer while we're logging in.
Windows computers have built-in options for users with disabilities, including many low vision settings. Called "Ease of Access," we can choose these options to suit our individual needs. Now, there are many ways we can open these low vision options after we booted up our computer, but some of us need personalized settings while we're logging in. Thankfully, Ease of Access provides the most commonly used options at the login screen. Let's start off by finding the Ease of Access icon on our login screen.
Ed Haines: Now that you’ve had a chance to learn a bit with us, we’d like to learn more about you; your name, email address, how you heard about Hadley and your relationship to vision loss.
Learning more will give us a better understanding of how to personalize Hadley just for you. And don’t worry, everything you share with us online will be kept safe and secure. Of course, if you’d prefer to talk through these questions, we’re just a phone call away at 800-323-4238.
Taking these few steps saves your preferences so you can continue right where you left off and track your progress every time you log on. Plus it connects you to the Hadley community, and helps sustain our funding to keep Hadley free of charge.
And last but not least, it gives you direct access to experts, like me. Now, where were we?
