  2. A convenient menu of additional accessibility/usability features
  3. The ability to quickly and easily place a MorphicBar on any computer at work, home, or school

Text Size

The + and – buttons under Text Size enable you to either increase or decrease the size of the text and pictures on your screen. There are multiple settings you can choose from to fit your personal needs.


When you click on Show Magnifier, your own personal “magnifying glass” pops up that enlarges everything you scroll over. You’ll never miss any “fine print” again. To turn off, simply click on the Hide Magnifier.


When you click on Snip’s copy button a live crosshair cursor pops up on your screen. Simply press your mouse button and drag to draw a square around what you want to copy. Let go of your mouse button. You can then paste the picture in email or anywhere.

Read Selected

Select any text with your mouse and then click on the Read Selected play button and the computer will read it for you. Great for those who would like to listen to an article while doing something else or for people with certain types of dyslexia. Mac computers have a pop-up control panel.


Contrast allows you to adjust the contrast between text and its background.  It also removes shading of tabs and other parts of the screen that reduce contrast.


The Color button turns color filters on and off that help people with colorblindness see color differences more easily (e.g. a color coded chart). Users can change the filters for different types of colorblindness.

Dark Mode

Some people prefer to have white text on a dark background. Some find it more restful on the eyes.  Dark mode changes the computer and many (but not all) of its programs with dark text on white background to light text on dark background.

Night Mode

Night Mode (also called Night Time or Night Shift) reduces the blue-white light and makes your screen a little more warm and yellow. Some people feel this reduces strain on the eyes. Some feel that it makes it easier to sleep after viewing.
