How do people with vision disabilities use computers? How can you make your documents suitable for them? This lesson covers how computers are used by people with vision disabilities and what you can do to make your documents accessible for people who are blind, have low vision, or are color blind. Some of the areas we will look at are adding text descriptions to images, hyperlinks, font size, and color settings.
