A file management system should not be confused with a file system, which manages all types of data and files in an operating system (OS), or a database management system (DBMS), which has relational database capabilities and includes a programming language for further data manipulation. A file management system's tracking component is key to the creation and management of this system, where documents containing various stages of processing are shared and interchanged on an ongoing basis.

finally, in this module, we're going to have a look at accessibility options. So these are features built into Windows and other operating systems designed to help people with disabilities to work with their computers.
00:17
So just a few of these just to give you an example of what we mean.
00:22
So there is an onscreen keyboard available. So if people have problems using a really physical keyboard, but they are able to, for example, use a mouse or if they're able to use a touch screen, then you can put a keyboard on the screen, and they could use that either with the mouse or with their fingers.
00:39
People. For people with visual disabilities, there's an on screen magnifier, so that magnifies everything.
00:46
On DDE,
00:48
high contrast color schemes
00:51
for people who are again visually impaired. There is also an onscreen narrator, and what that will do is read out whatever you're seeing on the screen.
01:00
So there's those, and there's many other accessibility options available,
01:06
and you can get to these in any version of windows. If you just click, start and start typing accessibility.
01:17
Many operating systems have features that make it easier to operate the computer for people with disabilities,
01:23
Windows is no exception.
01:25
In Windows, you can search for accessibility options
01:34
and then click on view current accessibility settings.
01:38
So
01:40
one of the most obvious ones here is start magnifier.
01:44
Click on that
01:45
on As you can see, As I move around the screen, it magnifies whatever I'm pointing at.
01:53
I can also try different options like
01:57
I can have a full screen
02:00
now. It magnifies everything on the screen. As I moved my mouse around the screen, you'll see it automatically scrolls around. Show me the different parts of the screen.
02:12
You can also just the level of zoom
02:15
on DDE.
02:17
Now let's have a look at. Narrator
02:20
This is for people with visual disabilities who maybe need to hear what's going on on the screen.
02:25
So we're going to start this up and then I'll show you how to turn it off, because
02:30
if you don't need it, it is really annoying.
02:36
Starting here, it access center window start. Narrator but ordinary hungry text on the screen
02:43
Tool Tip start. Narrator
02:46
tooled him.
02:50
Tool tip Start onscreen keyboard.
02:53
I told him
02:55
you
02:58
use the computer without a display window unchecked. Turn on. Narrator checkbox all plus you.
03:07
So let's turn that off
03:10
at Cafs Walk no thick.
03:14
Narrator Desktop One of 11 court settings on narrator toggle, switch
03:21
exiting. Narrator.
03:27
We also have access to an onscreen keyboard. So for people who may have trouble using a normal keyboard but can use the mouse, you can turn this on,
03:37
and this allows you to enter
03:39
text
03:40
by either. If you have a touch screen touching the keys on this onscreen keyboard,
03:46
or if you can use a mouse, you can use the mouse to enter information.
04:00
And also for people with visual disabilities, we can set up high contrast screen.
04:10
I can, for example, go and choose
04:13
something like this,
04:15
and it can change as you can see the color scheme into our high contrast color scheme
04:20
and switch back again.
04:25
So there's a number of different options on DDE.
04:29
Down here we have a number of wizards, and so these wizards allow you to make adjustments based on exactly the issue that you trying to deal with. For example, if you find it hard to use the mouse,
04:41
you can click on this,
04:43
and Windows shows you the options available for mouse operation, including things like what the cursor looks like
