How To Find And Use A Screen Reader
Screen readers are text-to-speech software that allow people to read and interact with content in different ways. Many people who cannot perceive what is on the screen will use them to allow audible access to web content. Capital One designs and codes for accessibility. We strive to ensure that our content is accessible to screen readers.
There are free options available including NVDA for Windows and VoiceOver for Mac. What we recommend is JAWS for Windows. You can use this with your favorite web browser. Screen readers accept input in a variety of ways, but one of the most common forms is through your keyboard. By pressing the down arrow in JAWS, for example, you are able to navigate through items on the page. JAWS will also accept Braille input.
How To Use Accessibility Tools On Mobile
Several features are located on smartphones. iOS and Android alike provide many tools to help you access what you love. Let’s have a look at a few of those tools.
VoiceOver for iOS and TalkBack for Android are the screen readers that come built-in. To turn on VoiceOver, go to "Settings", then "General", to "Accessibility", and then turn "VoiceOver" on. You can set the “Accessibility Shortcut” to “VoiceOver” from the "Accessibility" page in order to triple-click the "Home" button to toggle VoiceOver on and off. TalkBack has a similar feature.
"Zoom", "Magnifier", "Invert Colors", "Color Filters", and "Reduce White Point" are other features and tools on iOS that you can use. These are also available through the “Accessibility Shortcut”.
