If you have difficulties using both a keyboard and a mouse, speech recognition software is available and may help you navigate web pages and other online services more easily. Dragon NaturallySpeaking allows users to navigate the screen through voice controls.
Resources for the Deaf or Hearing Impaired
There are several accessibility features available to you if you are deaf or hard of hearing.
A text transcript is a text equivalent of audio information that includes spoken words and non-spoken sounds such as sound effects.
A caption is a synchronized transcript of the audio track of a video presentation. Captions are generally superimposed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, or anyone who cannot hear the audio.
Each video and audio service has its own set of volume controls as do your computer, tablet or mobile device. Try adjusting your media players volume controls and your device's volume controls to enhance the sound.
