F123 Access (pronounced F 1 2 3 Access), is software which reformats website pages so that these pages are more accessible to blind people. F123 Access is a web-browser “extension” which is installed in your Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome browser.
- It improves the formatting of pages for those with a visual impairment who use screen-reader software.
- It is compatible with a wide variety of screen-readers, including JAWS, NVDA, Orca, VoiceOver, and Window Eyes. The current version is designed for use with the Mozilla Firefox and Chrome browsers.
- It makes many automatic changes based on information that is already on the page, but which may be in the wrong place or illegible for screen reader software. F123 Access is also able to use the information provided by volunteers or specialists, to make any particular website more accessible.
- System Requirements: Mozilla Firefox or Chrome and a screen reader compatible with it, such as NVDA, Jaws, Orca, VoiceOver, or Window Eyes.
- F123 Access can be used on any desktop or laptop computer that has Firefox or Chrome installed.
- F123 Access is available with an interface in Portuguese, Spanish, and English – and partly in Italian.
