Using a computer

Blind and partially sighted people can use desktop, laptop and netbook computers with confidence. Use the links under the "Using a computer" menu, to find out about the screen readers and magnifiers that are available for Apple, Linux and Windows computers.

If you have questions about using a computer, try the BCAB technology forum. It's an email-based forum for discussing all kinds of technology, so it's a great way to ask questions of blind and partially sighted people who use computers. It's free to join, just create an account.
