3.	Accessibility options is your first option, so enter to open
4.	CTRL+TAB to display
5.	ALT+U to select the option of high contrast
6.	ALT+S to go to settings options
7.	TAB to select—use shortcut-hit space bar to select

11.	Hit ALT+A to apply these choices and your screen will change

14.	The hot key to switch back and forth between regular screen and this
