There are many web browsers to choose from when working on a Windows machine, but some are more accessible than others when the user has a visual impairment. Fortunately, Vivaldi has recognized that accessibility improvements needed to be added to their browser.
Vivaldi has added a light or dark theme, text sizing, font chooser, and keyboard shortcuts. A full list of the enhancements is listed below:
Advanced Reader Mode is the first new feature mentioned on the official launch post where the readers will now get a neat and clutter free reading experience. Vivaldi 1.11 lets the users enable Reader Mode from their browser settings. The Reader Mode further lets the user select a light or dark background, font type, and the text size. Some new themes with minimal contrasts are also introduced in Vivaldi 1.11 so as to help the readers with visual impairments.
Vivaldi also adds a feature of turning Off the GIF animations in its new version. So, the people who don’t like the annoying flashing images on their browser can actually turn it off easily from the Toggle Images icon in the Status Bar.
Next feature added in the latest version of Vivaldi is the Adjustable Mouse Gesture sensitivity, where users can execute a command with a very simple and small movement of their mouse. Furthermore, the users now get more control over their mouse and can set their own stroke length as per their convenience.
Other salient features of Vivaldi 1.11 include Spatial navigation, Quick Commands and keyboard shortcuts and the ability to Zoom the selected web pages.
