The Zune software has features that make it accessible to those who have limited dexterity, low vision or other impairments. The following features make the Zune software more accessible:
Active control. As you tab through the page, you’ll see a dotted rectangle outlining an item that you can access. This is called your “active control”. When the item that you want to access is selected, use the appropriate keys to activate that control (type into a text box, use the Spacebar to select or clear a check box or option button, or press the Enter key to activate a button).
