Accessible Windows: Working with the Accessibility Settings

Although the rest of the world has, over the past few years, striven to increase access for the disabled (in the form of Braille elevator buttons, wheelchair ramps, and handicapped parking spaces, to name a few changes), the computer industry has until recently lagged sadly behind.
