Setting your computer up to meet your needs 

Computers and browsers offer a variety of ways to meet our needs, from making text larger to reading text aloud. This short guide directs you to two useful resources.

AbilityNet‚Äôs https://mcmw.abilitynet.org.uk/ website provides step by step guides to adjust your computer, browser or mobile device in ways that suit your needs and preferences.
