More on Re-sizing the View

A common technique in improving accessibility is to use relative font sizes and to allow the user to increase or decrease the relative index. Allowing the user to re-size the text is a major accessibility feature but when panels, images and other components are not re-sized proportionately this method can often result in a messy and therefore confusing presentation. We have designed this web application to allow components to re-size proportionately. When the 'Crtl' and '=' zoom in keys are hit the layout will enlarge but not distort.

The My Computer My Way website offers a guide to making your PC accessible. It offers help with seeing the screen, using your keyboard and mouse, and with language and reading.
