If you are looking for mouse and keyboard alternatives, speech recognition software such as Dragon Naturally Speaking
may help you navigate web pages and online services. This software allows the user to move focus around a web page
or application screen through voice controls.

Closed Captioning

Closed captioning provides a transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio 
tracks. Captions are generally displayed near our ADA videos, which benefits people who are deaf and hard of hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio due to noisy environments.

Volume Controls

Your computer, tablet or mobile device has volume control features. Each video and audio service has its own additional volume controls and your media players' volume controls to optimize your listening experience.

If the recommendations above do not meet your needs, we invite you to contact us at: 330-364-5288 for assistance.
