Making Windows Accessible for the Hearing, Sight, and Movement Impaired

Similar to previous versions, Windows Millennium Edition includes a variety of features intended to make Windows more usable for people with disabilities. These features fall into several categories:

  • If you have difficulty using keyboard combinations, features such as StickyKeys let you press the Shift, Ctrl, or Alt key and then press another key, with Windows interpreting the results as though you had pressed both keys simultaneously.

  • For anyone who cannot hear system sounds, Windows enables you to assign an action (a flashing window border, for instance) to take place whenever a sound is played.

  • Accessibility options enable you to magnify the screen or use high-contrast color schemes, which can overcome the effects of visual disabilities.
