Using assistive technology
Assistive technologies are products used by people with disabilities to help accomplish tasks that they cannot accomplish otherwise or could not do easily otherwise. When used with computers, assistive technologies are also referred to as adaptive software.
Some assistive technologies rely on output of other user agents, such as graphical desktop browsers, text browsers, voice browsers, multimedia players and plug-ins. Assistive technology comes in many different forms, including:
- alternative keyboards or switches;
- braille and refreshable braille;
- screen magnifiers;
- sound notification;
- screen readers;
- speech recognition;
- scanning software;
- speech synthesis (speech output);
- tabbing through structural elements;
- text browsers;
- voice browsers.
The site is designed to make tabbing through a page easy. The order for tab indexing in a page is:
- accessibility links;
- main content links;
- sub menu content links;
- footer main content links.
