Surfing the web can be tough, especially for people with disabilities. Many websites are just not set up with accessibility in mind. Super small print. Dense, hard to decipher block text. Graphics plopped onto the page for no good reason. And sub-par browsers can make things even worse.
Making Edge accessible for everyone
Did you know that Microsoft Edge has some amazing built-in features that will improve your browsing experience right away?
- Increase text size: Don't squint at the screen! It's easy to adjust your font sizes to one that is easy for you to see.
- Read aloud function: Listen to pages spoken aloud to you as you scroll.
- Image descriptions: No need to try and decipher pictures. Edge will add descriptions of what you're seeing right beneath the graphic, and it works beautifully with screen readers.
- Immersive reader: Minimize distractions and improve your focus by seeing only the most important items.
