Layout

 
Layout
 

  Layout Mode

 

For the layout of Easy Web Browsing, you can switch between three patterns: "Full screen","Full screen with toolbars", and "Free layout."

Full screen

This is the standard layout of Easy Web Browsing. The layout is displayed all over the screen of your personal computer. Scrollbar width is set to "Wide."

Simple


Full screen with toolbars

With this setting, the layout is displayed all over the screen of your personal computer. The Internet Explorer toolbar is displayed under the operation panel. Scrollbar width is set to "Normal."

Full screen with toolbars


Free layout

As Internet Explorer, the layout is displayed in any window size you want. The Windows taskbar and start menu are also displayed. Easy Web Browsing's operation panel and magnification window are displayed in small sizes in the right lower corner. Scrollbar width is set to "No adjustment."

Using the mouse, you can change the sizes and positions of the operation panel and the magnification window. If after being repositioned, the operation panel or the magnification window overlaps with the Windows taskbar or is outside the screen, it is moved to another position when Easy Web Browsing is started again.

If you close the operation panel by pressing the cross mark in the operation panel title bar, you exit Easy Web Browsing. If you close the magnification window by pressing the cross mark in its title bar, "Set magnification window height" is set to "None." By changing this setting, you can again display the magnification window.

* When Easy Web Browsing is started for the first time, "Full screen" is selected.
* After the scrollbar is displayed, you can change its width by resetting the "Scrollbar width" as explained below.

 

  Scrollbar width

 

This setting determines the width of the scrollbar. You can choose one of three values by clicking on the respective checkbox. You can specify only one value.

(Scrollbar: A knob type portion that appears on the lower right side of the screen when the window is too small to display a whole page)
(Window: An independent and small screen that is prepared at the startup of a program. An image and document are displayed on such screen.)

 

  Pull-down menu expand lines

 

This setting determines the number of items from a pull-down menu that Easy Web Browsing displays. Choose one of three values by clicking the respective checkbox. You can specify only one value.

This setting determines whether the Rate and Volume buttons or the Loading Status is displayed. If you choose to display the loading status instead of the buttons, you cannot adjust the rate or the volume.

However, this enables you to confirm the loading status so that you can determine how long you must wait until speech becomes possible. If you want to make an adjustment after moving to another page, de-select the checkbox on that new page to display the rate and volume buttons.

If you invalidate the checkmark for "Enable speech," it is automatically checkmarked.

* The checkmark has already been invalidated at the initial startup of Easy Web Browsing.

When you want to restart speech, move the mouse to the point from which you want to start speech. Speech starts from the paragraph to which the mouse is moved. You cannot start speech from the middle of a paragraph.
