If you struggle to read black text on white computer screen

Continuing with the series of posts on accessibility solutions in the library, let’s have a look at RapidSet.

RapidSet is really easy to use; it helps those who find the usual white background and black font difficult to read.

To open this, click on Start.

  • Then go to All Programs
  • Go to Access Apps – an ‘AA’ icon will appear in the right hand side  of the start bar. Click this to open the programe.
  • Click on Reading and Writing Support.
  • Select RapidSet change font/background. Once this is done you will see this screen:


  • You can change the background or font colour by selecting the ‘Select Background Colour’ or ‘Select Font Colour’ buttons and then clicking on ‘Apply’.
  • To change the colours back to Windows default settings, simply repeat the process and select the original background and font colours.

If you need any help with this, please ask a member of staff.
