  1. 1. Hello!This is your 30-Second Inclusion Training Microsoft & Mac Brought to you by the Office of Faith Based andCommunity Initiatives (OFBCI). Click here to begin
  2. 2. What kind of accessibility features do Microsoft and Mac offer? Microsoft can help you configure windows for your vision, hearing, and mobility needs, as complex as a narrator or as simple as slowing down your curser or using contrasting display colors. Microsoft can help you alter the size of the items on your screen or use Microsoft Magnifier and large titles and menus as well as visual warnings for system sounds and displaying captions. Mac users can utilize “Alex” the Voice of Mac, Safari Reader to simplify Internet sites, and several features which will have your computer talking to you for alerts, calculations, or if you need to know the time. All of the above and much more. (no cheating…if this is the first place you came, go back and read )
  3. 3. Good Answer! However, the Microsoft Accessibilities feature on your computer can do so much more. Just click on… 1. “start menu” 2. “All Programs” 3. “Accessories” 4. “Accessibilities”You will be amazed at what your computer is already capable of doing for you. You’ll want to tell everyone. Try again!
  4. 4. Great Answer! But wait – there’s more!Mac has an entire section on their website designedto assist people with disabilities. For moreinformation about Mac features for iPods, iPads,OS X Lion, Braille displays, and iPhones click here. Try again!
  5. 5. Excellent!Most likely at some point in all of our lives, we will need some kind of assistive technology. It’s here and there is so muchmore out there.
