Windows XP features several useful accessibility tools to help people with disabilities configure and use
computers quickly - without additional software and hardware. Accessibility features from earlier releases of
Windows have been improved upon, such as the Magnifier and the
Accessibility Manager. In addition, Narrator and On-screen Keyboard, together with the previously
mentioned Magnifier, are installed by default in Windows
XP. They appear along with the Accessibility Wizard and the Utility Manager in the expanded Windows
XP Accessibility menu, which can be accessed through the
Windows Start menu. Utility Manager brings all of the Windows XP Accessibility
programs—Narrator, Magnifier, and On-screen Keyboard—together in one place.
An administrator can quickly check the status of an individual program, or start and stop any or all of
them at the same time.
