Do you struggle with the computer screen that's too bright or difficult to see? If so, you're not alone. I'm Vikki Vaughan and together we'll look at Windows' built-in color filters. We'll learn how to use a keyboard shortcut to open Windows' ease of access and find the color filters menu. Many people with low vision are super sensitive to light and the glare from their monitor. Others find the colors on their computer distracting. For people with conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, or retinitis pigmentosa, looking at a computer screen for even a short time can prove difficult. The brightness of the screen often leads to visual fatigue and eyestrain. For others, certain color things make it difficult to focus. Research shows that various filters can improve contrast and eye comfort. They can also help users focus on a particular task.
