Recommended accessibility settings

Use the following settings to get the best experience with Sophos Enterprise Console.

You need to set your punctuation and symbol settings so that:

  • Backslash symbols are read out.
  • Asterisk symbols are read out (as "star").
  • Question mark symbols aren't read.

Alternatively, you can add symbols like backslash or asterisk ( * ) to Symbol Pronunciation.

Note For dialogs that use question mark as a wildcard symbol we recommend changing the symbol pronunciation level to all while you are using the dialog. Such dialogs will tell you that you need to do this.

To make Sophos Enterprise Console easier to see you can use the Microsoft Magnifier. Find out more about Microsoft Magnifier.

Or you can change the scaling in Windows. To do this:

  1. Go to Settings > Display.
  2. Change the value of Scale and layout or enter a Custom scaling value.
