Hi, I'm Vikki Vaughan and together we'll look at tools for customizing our cursor and pointer. Do you have trouble finding your cursor or pointer? For many of us, locating these essential tools is one of the most challenging aspects of using our computer. We often end up spending way too much time trying to find them, especially on a busy web page. Wouldn't it be great if we had a simple way to make our cursor and pointer easier to find? Well, today's our lucky day. Windows Ease of Access has just the tools we need.
Let's begin by talking about the difference between a cursor and a pointer. Put simply, the cursor is the blinking vertical bar that shows the position in our text when we're inserting characters. For that reason, it's sometimes called the insertion bar.
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?
