Problems with the practice?
HelpTry our troubleshooting tips

In this practice session you will look at the various ways in which a computer's display settings can be altered to help people with disabilities.

You will use the accessibility features in Microsoft® Windows® to change some of your computer settings. This practice session assumes that your computer is currently set up with the default display settings.

Important     Do not worry if your screen display changes. This is part of the practice, and you will receive instructions on how to get all your settings back to normal.
