how to use magnifier , narrator , on-screen keyboard options in windows xp ?
Magnifier is a utility that displays a magnified portion of your screen in a separate window.
To set up Magnifier, select it from the See Also bar in the Accessibility Options folder. In the Magnifier Settings dialog box, you can tell Magnifier to follow the mouse, the keyboard focus, or text editing. To return to Normal view, click the Close button in the Magnifier dialog box.
If you have difficulty reading the screen or if you are helping a blind user, you can enable Sam, the Windows XP Professional Narrator. Sam reads aloud menu commands, dialog box options, and so on. To open the Narrator dialog box, which is shown in Figure A-6, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click Accessibility, and then click Narrator. Sam reads aloud the contents of this dialog box.
In the Narrator dialog box, click the Voice button to open the Voice Settings dialog box, in which you can modify the speed at which Sam reads and the volume and pitch of his voice. If Narrator does not perform well enough to meet your needs or cannot read some applications, you will need a more fully functional utility.
Using the On-Screen Keyboard
If you have a disability that makes typing difficult, you might want to check out the on-screen keyboard. You can use the mouse to type. To see how this works, click the On-Screen Keyboard link in the See Also bar. The On-Screen Keyboard is displayed on your screen.
Click the keys with your mouse. You can alternate between “typing” and choosing menu commands. When you’re finished, click the Close button.
TIP If you can’t see a portion of the screen where you need to type, click the keyboard’s title bar and drag the keyboard to a new location.
Using Utility Manager
You use Utility Manager, which is shown in Figure A-8, to start and stop Magnifier, Narrator, and On-Screen Keyboard and to specify that any of the three starts automatically when Windows starts or when you start Utility Manager. To open Utility Manager, press the Windows logo key+U.
NOTE From the Accessibility menu on the Accessories menu, you can also open the Accessibility Wizard, Magnifier, Narrator, and On-Screen Keyboard.
Active Document Window
The active document window shows the document you’re currently working on. If you’re working with an Excel document, for example, and you tell Excel to print, Excel prints the document shown in the active document window. If you enter text by typing on the keyboard, Windows XP enters what you type into the active document window.
Windows XP adds a button to the taskbar for each open document. You can switch to another document, thereby making that document’s window active, by clicking the document’s taskbar button.
