♿ Build for People with Disabilities is in our heart and thoughts

Accessibility tool

Today, 17 May 2018 it is the Global Accessibility Awareness Day. It is an awareness day focusing on accessibility. And people with disabilities need a helpful tool, so they can experience the web in a less fearful way. That is better for your eyes and for the screen reader software.

One of the first accessibility features in Turn Off the Lights browser extension was the Speech Recognition feature. With a voice command, you can activate the dark layer and even play or pause the current video player. And that without touching any buttons on the web page. Since the launch of the Turn Off the Lights browser extension v4. There are many new improvements for People with Disabilities. Therefore, it starts all from a new Options page layout that is touch friendly but in the background also good for the screen reader software.

People with Disabilities

People with Disabilities need a good tool for on the web. And Turn Off the Lights software enhances that visibility and reduces distractibility on the web. Here are 3 things that have been improved from the previous extension version:

1. Change the tab with your keyboard

You can change now the tab on the Options page, by using the alt key and the first (English) letter of that tab name.

Windows users

Press the alt key + N
That will open you the Night Mode tab in the Turn Off the Lights Options page.

macOS users

Press the ctrl altB
With this shortcut key, it opens the Basics tab in the Turn Off the Lights Options page.

2. Touch-friendly and comfortable layout

The options page are now not compact and compressed in one single view. And every single tab has his own icon that describes the function of that web page.

3. Dark Mode Options page

Too much bright light shining directly in our eyes is not good. You can even be blind of a second of that light. Because of this uncomfortable aspect, there is an option to get a dark user interface for the Options page.
