What is an accessibility overlay and why do we need it?
An accessibility overlay is a software application that provides an alternative way to view and interact with web content. It is designed to help people with disabilities who may have difficulty using a traditional web browser. The overlay can customize the way web content is displayed, make it easier to navigate, and provide tools for interacting with the content.
How to use the overlay correctly
There are a few things to keep in mind when using an accessibility overlay:
• The overlay should be used in addition to, not instead of, the traditional web browser. It is not a replacement for the web browser.
• The user should be able to customize the way the content is displayed. For example, they should be able to choose how the text is sized, the colors used, and whether or not they want the content to be read aloud.
• The user should be able to control the overlay. They should be able to turn it on and off and move it around the screen.
Tips for getting the most out of the overlay
Here are some tips for getting the most out of the accessibility overlay:
• Use the customization features to tailor the way the content is displayed to your needs.
• Use the tools provided to interact with the content in a comfortable way for you.
