Using the Utility Manager

The Utility Manager allows you to check the status of and start or stop the Magnifier, Narrator, and On-Screen Keyboard accessibility programs. Magnifier is a utility that enlarges an area of the screen. Narrator is a text-to-speech utility that gives users who are blind or have impaired vision access to the computer. On-Screen Keyboard is a utility that displays a keyboard on the screen where users with mobility impairments can type using a mouse, joystick, or other pointing device. If you have administrator access to your computer, you can specify how the accessibility programs start when you log on, lock the desktop, or start the Utility Manager.

If Narrator starts, click OK, and then click Exit to close the program.

Click the program you want to manage.

Select or clear the check boxes you want to specify how you want the selected program to start.
