Provide settings and options that are easy to try out and modify
This feature makes it easy for the user to try out and modify different settings and options. For example, the user should be able to try out different magnification levels to determine which one is the best for his own vision level. Likewise, the user can turn on and off different features easily and can combine different features to provide a customized experience.
Discussion by Disabilities
Some of the access features may cause confusion and make the program difficult to use for those with different abilities. By making it clear and simple how to modify options, it reduces the user’s confusion at different settings and makes it easy to try them out to find the best match.
