The Accessibility Settings in Type to Learn allow you to make some adjustments to the program to accommodate visually impaired or Spanish-speaking students.
Important Note: These settings do not change the content that is typed or the other content you would normally see throughout the program. Instead, they activate pop-up boxes that appear when the cursor is hovering over a piece of text. These pop-up boxes are adjusted based on these settings.
