Windows to Accessibility

Bungalow Software logo

Modern computers, in standard configuration, are effectively locked to people who can only type with one finger or have visual and motor deficits. Luckily, buried deep inside Windows 95™ are some features that can allow just about anyone, with a single finger and lots of patience, to fully utilize their Windows 95™ PC without any specialized hardware or software.

Disabled users may not be able use the mouse or multi-key commands (such as the famous used to reboot a computer). Some users might also have difficulty with the auto-repeat feature of the keyboard. Without perfect timing and coordination, and activation pressure, they might end up with a whole string of each letter they type. These are just some of the problems that might be encountered. Luckily, Windows 95™ includes tools to make the computer more accessible for the disabled. Best of all, these features are part of Windows 95™. You just have to find them.
