3 Portable Free Software for Accessibility

by on May 18th, 2011

You do not need to install the portable software in the PC. That enables you to copy the software into your pen drive and take it with you anywhere you want and use it at any PC. If you like accessibility in computer and use on-screen board or magnifying glass (to have a closer look at design/development or any other other element) then here are three great softwares that are available in portable form.

Firefox Accessibility Extension

The Mozilla/Firefox Accessibility Extension makes it easier for people with disabilities to view and navigate web content. Developers can use the extension to check their use of structural and styling markup that support functional web accessibility.

On-Screen Keyboard Portable

On-Screen Keyboard Portable is a handy way to bring your settings for the Windows’ built-in On-Screen Keyboard with you from PC to PC. On-Screen Keyboard Portable makes it easy to access Windows’ built-in On-Screen Keyboard on any system you come across. It remembers your settings for sound, hover to select or click to select, always on top, keyboard layout and more as you move from PC to PC. And the icon sits right in your PortableApps.com Menu for easy access. For earlier operating systems that lack a built-in on-screen keyboard (Windows 95/98/Me) it even includes a simple virtual keyboard that, while lighter on accessibility features, is still useful.

Virtual Magnifying Glass Portable

Virtual Magnifying Glass Portable is a full-featured screen magnifying glass that allows you to zoom in on an area of the screen for better readability. It’s also handy for design work. With a variable zoom (1-20x), configurable size, hot-key support (CTRL-ALT-e) and lots of other great features.
