Have you ever visited a website or tried viewing a document on or offline and wanted to zoom-in. Sometimes our vision falls short of the task of seeing what our screen renders making a website, document or image file inaccessible. Apple has address the issue of accessibility through Mac OS X by including vision features in its Universal Access preferences. Universal Access is not for everyone but it does offer handy feature when something you are working on need enhancing.
To enable Universal Access without going to System Preferences simply hold-down the Option + Command + 8 keys.
- 1. Zoom-in by holding the Option + Command + “plus /Equal” key in the upper right of your keyboard. You can also step-in by tapping the plus/equal key.
- 2. Zoom-out with the Option + Command + “dash/Underscore” key next to the “plus /Equal” key. You can also step-out by tapping the “dash/Underscore” key.
To disable the feature just hold down the Option + Command + 8 again.
