Using the Ease of Access Center


Microsoft Windows Vista includes built-in accessibility settings and programs that make it easier for computer users to see, hear, and use their computers. Microsoft invested in more than three years of research to better understand the needs of people who experience a wide range of physical challenges that can impact their computer use. The accessibility settings and programs in Windows Vista are particularly helpful to people with visual difficulties, hearing loss, pain in their hands or arms, or reasoning and cognitive issues.

Major accessibility improvements in Windows Vista include the Ease of Access Center and state-of-the-art speech recognition and magnification capabilities.




The Ease of Access Center in Windows Vista provides a centralized location where you can get quick access to adjust accessibility settings and manage assistive technology programs.

The Ease of Access Center includes:



  • Quick Access. Start Magnifier, Narrator, On-Screen Keyboard, and High Contrast.

  • Recommended Settings. Based on answers to questions about performing routine tasks, such as whether you have difficulty seeing faces or text on TV, hearing conversations, or using a pen or pencil, Windows Vista provides a personalized recommendation of the accessibility settings and programs that are likely to improve your ability to see, hear, and use your computer.

  • Explore available settings by category. The Ease of Access Center also lets you explore settings options by categories: including making the computer easier to see, using the computer without a display, changing mouse or keyboard settings or using the computer without a mouse or keyboard, using alternatives for sounds, and making it easier to focus on tasks.

The Ease of Access Center can be found in the Control Panel of Windows Vista, or by selecting Winkey+U.

The Ease of Access Center replaces the Accessibility Wizard and Utilities Manager in previous versions of Windows.
