How to zoom in your screen
Some people like to zoom into the screen or web browser in order to see things better. Here are a few ways of doing it depending on your setup:
- 1. On Windows, press the Windows key and plus sign (+) at the same time to zoom in. You can also use the "Magnifier" application under "Accessories".
- 2. On Mac, go to "System Preferences", open "Universal Access" and select the "Seeing" tab. Check the box under "Zoom" to "On".
- 3. On your Apple device, tap "Settings", then "General", then "Accessibility". Tap the "Zoom" button and toggle it "On".
You can also use "Ctrl" ("Cmd" on Mac) plus the plus (+) or minus (-) keys when you're in a web browser.
How to change the colors or fonts on the page
Some people like to change colors or fonts to see words more clearly. Most major web browsers have options to do this:
- 1. In Internet Explorer, go to "Tools", then "Internet Options", on to "General". From here, select "Colors, Fonts, or Accessibility".
- 2. In Mozilla Firefox, choose "Options", then "Content", then finally "Fonts & Colors".
- 3. In Safari, select "Preferences", "Appearance" tab, and then hit the "Select…" button next to the font fields.
- 4. In Chrome, go to "Preferences", activate the "Show advanced settings" link, go to the "Web content" heading and change the "Font size", "Customize fonts" in other ways, or set default "Page zoom".
We recommend a mixture of settings like enlarging font size and zooming into the browser for a better experience.
How to find and use a screen reader
Screen readers are text-to-speech software that allow people to read and interact with content in different ways. Many people who cannot perceive what is on the screen will use them to allow audible access to web content. Capital One designs and codes for accessibility. We strive to ensure that our content is accessible to screen readers.
There are free options available including NVDA for Windows and VoiceOver for Mac. What we recommend is JAWS for Windows. You can use this with your favorite web browser.
Screen readers accept input in a variety of ways, but one of the most common forms is through your keyboard. By pressing the down arrow in JAWS, for example, you are able navigate through items on the page. JAWS will also accept Braille input.
