Microsoft is committed to making its products and services easier for you to use. Most accessibility provisions that are offered through Windows are available when you use Windows Azure Backup Agent.
Use Keyboard shortcuts in the Windows Azure Backup Agent
Keyboard shortcuts are combinations of two or more keys that, when they are pressed, can be used to perform a task that would typically require a mouse or other pointing device. Keyboard shortcuts can make it easier to interact with your computer. This saves you time and effort as you work with Windows and other programs.
Most programs also provide accelerator keys that can make it easier to work with menus and other commands. Check the menus of programs for accelerator keys. If a letter is underlined in a menu, it usually means that pressing the ALT key in combination with the underlined key will have the same effect as clicking that command.
Use high-contrast mode
You can turn on the high-contrast mode in the Windows Control Panel to make the screen easier to see if you have low-vision.
To turn on high-contrast mode
On the Start screen, type control panel and then press ENTER to open the Control Panel.
Click Ease of Access.
In the Ease of Access Center, click Optimize visual display.
In the High Contrast area, click Choose a high contrast theme to open Personalization and then choose the high contrast theme that is best for your needs.
Images identified with Alt tags
Images that appear on the Windows Azure Backup web portal pages contain Alt tags. When you place your cursor over the image, a text description of the image appears for use with screen readers or other assistive technologies. Alt tags might not be used if they provide no additional information or are redundant with other text.
