1.7 Internet accessibility

1.7.1 Internet Explorer (IE)

All modern Internet browsers have additional accessibility features in order to allow them to cater for specific needs of the user. Below is a brief guide to the features, with links to external sites that will provide you with further information.

Internet Explorer is fully integrated with the Windows operating system. Windows offers a number of features to make using a computer easier for users with:

Microsoft has an assistive technology (https://www.microsoft.com/ enable/ at/ default.aspx) catalogue from which useful items such as screen enlargers, screen readers, talking word processors and touch screens can be purchased.

Internet Explorer has some options that make certain aspects of Internet browsing easier. These include using the keyboard instead of the mouse to navigate web pages.
