  • Pointer & Cursor - large and coloured mouse pointers and cursors.
  • Make text bigger - increase the size of the font to make it easier to read.
  • Make everything bigger - this includes menu bars, desktop icons, and other elements such as the Ribbon in Word.
  • Magnifier - use Magnifier to zoom in and out of the desktop and programs.
  • Narrator - a fully-fledged screen reader for Windows.
