Traffic School 2 U embraces the opportunity to develop services and information technologies that are accessible and usable by disabled and non-disabled individuals.
Our website generally supports navigational tools and orientation information to help support accessibility and usability by individuals with disabilities. We realize, for example, that not all users can make use of visual cues, such as image maps, proportional scroll bars, side-by-side frames, or graphics. Similarly, users may have difficulty manipulating a mouse or keyboard and instead depend on other assistive devices.
We maintain an ongoing commitment to accessibility and will continue its efforts to provide disabled users full access to our website, technologies and services. Please contact us for general questions about accessibility.
Accessibility Features of our Website
Most visitors will be able to view our website using the most popular browsers. Some of the accessibility features of the site are listed below.
- Text Descriptions Provided for Images and Pictures – When the mouse pointer or pointer alternative moves over an image, a small window pops up to give you a description of the image. This description is also provided to visitors who are using screen readers to access information on the page.
- Style Sheets Used to Format Page Content on this site are designed using cascading style sheets. This allows visitors to disable the formatting provided and apply their own formatting if they choose. Style sheets are disabled within an Internet browser’s settings or preferences options.
- The latest version of several web browsers allow users to easily increase the font size for better readability. Hold down the Ctrl key (Command key on a Macintosh) and press the + (plus) key. You can also decrease the font size by holding down the Ctrl or Command key and pressing the – (minus) key.
- Direct Links to Main Sections of Each Page are provided for those using Screen Readers – Screen readers tend to read pages from left to right and from top to bottom. The pages in our website provide internal bookmarks so that screen reader users can jump directly to specific sections of the page. This feature is referred to as a navigation menu bypass.
BrowseAloud is browser plug-in for people who find it difficult to read online. By reading text aloud and highlighting the words as they are spoken, BrowseAloud can help people with learning disabilities, English as a second language, and mild visual impairments.

- I can’t see very well
If you have trouble seeing web pages, the following information explains how to use your computer or web browser to make it easier to see web pages on socialsecurity.gov, and have web pages read out loud to you.
- I am blind
If you are blind, the following information explains how to use your computer, web browser and screen reader assistive technology to navigate web pages and online services on socialsecurity.gov.
- I find a keyboard or mouse hard to use
If you find a find a keyboard or mouse difficult to use, the following information explains how to use speech recognition software to navigate web pages and online services on socialsecurity.gov.
Speech recognition software allows the user to move focus to an application object by voicing the object label name or the object type.
Object types include:
- Text Box
- List Box
Each of these object types are given a label name that is visible on the screen and the voice user can say the name to move focus to that object.
A screen, an application or file can be accessed by voicing the text in the Title Bar.
If there is an object or many objects on a screen without labels then the user can voice an object type which will number all objects of that type on that screen. For example voicing “link” would number all links are on the visible screen and then a specific link can then be accessed by choosing the number desired. Voicing “checkbox”, “radio button, “text box, etc. will operate in the same manner.
If the screen design does not allow moving focus by voicing a label or an object type then the speech recognition software may provide a utility to move the mouse pointer in discrete steps or continuously.
Social Security has designed web pages and applications to utilize several different methods of using speech in order to provide flexibility in using speech recognition capabilities. Users should try combinations of these methods to determine what best meets an individual’s needs

A text transcript is a text equivalent of audio information that includes spoken words and non-spoken sounds such as sound effects.
A caption is transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally rendered visually by being superimposed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio (e.g., when in a crowded room).
The following information explains how to use captioning for video on demand and for both live and recorded webinars.
For video on demand, click the link to start the video playing. Next, click on the Closed Captioning (CC) button to activate the captioning feature.
