Getting Information From Computer
In early computers, all output was visual, either on a screen or from a printer. Modern information devices still use displays and printers but also have gained the ability to use sounds as well. With each advance in technology for one group, there is a possibility of increased problems for another. Information output can be grouped in a few large groups.
- Major information tools have some kinds of accommodation for people with sensory limitations built in. While these may be limited in scope, they are often all that people with moderate disabilities require.
- Accommodations to visual output: the screen and printed output.
- Accommodations for speech or other computer generated sounds.
Which type of accommodation are you looking for?
- Built-In Accommodations (36) - Access methods that are included by the hardware or operating system developer.
- Display computer output (148) - Accommodation of visual output on-screen or printed to meet the needs of those with sensory limitations.
- Spoken and other sound output (139) - Modern technology uses speech and other sounds to convey a great deal of information. These accommodations make that information available to those who cannot hear.
