Most operating systems (OS) provide users with the ability to adjust their desktop settings. For users with disabilities, customizing their computer interface is critical for their access. For example, some users with visual impairments need to adjust color contrast and/or increase font size. Other users may need to create desktop shortcuts to commonly used assistive technologies so that they can independently activate those tools as needed.
Often educational entities fail to implement these features, because of either a lack of awareness, or due to unsubstantiated security concerns.
