I find a Keyboard or mouse hard to use


If you find a keyboard or mouse difficult to use, speech recognition software such as Dragon NaturallySpeaking may help you navigate web pages and online services.  This software allows the user to move focus around the web page or application screen through voice controls.






I am deaf or hard of hearing


If you are deaf or hard of hearing, there are several accessibility features available to you:


A text transcript is a text equivalent of audio information that includes spoken words and non-spoken sounds such as sound effects.  WAAR does not currently host any video or audio content directly on their site.


A caption is transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks.  Captions are generally rendered visually by being superimposed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio (e.g., when in a crowded room).  WAAR does not currently host any video or audio content directly on their site.  Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.

Volume Controls

Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has volume control features.  Each video and audio service has its own additional volume controls.  Try adjusting both your devices volume controls and your media players' volume controls to optimize your listening experience.
