Computing is for everyone, so GNOME has a fully featured accessibility platform included.

A good page of information about it is in the Ubuntu community pages.

Setting Up Universal Access

From the GNOME shell, search for Universal Access.

From here, you can pick your settings. See Included Features for a complete list of settings that are available.

Included Features

In Universal Access, you can select from four categories of assistance:

  1. Seeing

  2. Hearing

  3. Typing

  4. Pointing and Clicking
