Adobe FrameMaker software provides a number of features that improve access for visually impaired users.
Other FrameMaker features that improve access for people with disabilities include:
FrameMaker uses system colors to draw window backgrounds, text, and other graphics. Users who have trouble discerning colors or variations in contrast, or who have low visual acuity, can set high-contrast color schemes and custom text and background colors. This setting makes the information in the user interface easier to view.
FrameMaker adjusts colors of such interface items as tool bars, title bars, menus, scroll bars, dialog boxes, panels, rulers, grids, and icons in window borders.
Note: FrameMaker does not adjust colors of all items. Some of these include the background color, the fill color of graphic object, and the fonts used in the title bar in some panels, such as Equations.
On the Windows operating system lauch the on-screen keyboard.
Note: The On-Screen Keyboard provides a minimum level of functionality for mobility-impaired users. Mobility-impaired users will need a utility program with higher functionality for daily use.
Screen readers let visually impaired users interact with the computer by interpreting what is happening on the screen and sending that information to speech-synthesis devices. The screen reader will follow the logical structure of the document. Screen readers can read FrameMaker documents viewed in FrameMaker, or tagged PDF documents viewed in Adobe Acrobat® or Acrobat Reader®. Refer to your screen reader documentation for information on installation and use with documents viewed in FrameMaker or Acrobat.
