We are continuously working to improve the accessibility of content on our website.
If you have trouble seeing web pages, the US Social Security Administration offers these tips for optimizing your computer and browser to make your browsing experience more accessible:
Use your computer to read web pages out loud
Use the keyboard to navigate screens
Increase text size
Magnify your screen
Change background and text colors
Make your mouse pointer more visible (Windows only)
If you are looking for mouse and keyboard alternatives, speech recognition software such as Dragon Naturally Speaking may help you navigate web pages and online services. This software allows the user to move focus around a web page or application screen through voice controls.
If you are deaf or hard of hearing, the accessibility features available to you include the following:
Closed captioning provides a transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally visually displayed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard of hearing, as well as anyone who cannot hear the audio due to noisy environments. Most of our video content includes captions. Captions on YouTube can be turned on by clicking or tapping the “CC” icon located in the video area of your screen.
Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has volume control features. Each video and audio service also has its own additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device’s volume controls and your media players’ volume controls to optimize your listening experience.
If the recommendations above do not meet your needs, we invite you to contact us at (989) 486-3025 for assistance.
