Managing accessibility settings

GitHub Enterprise Server's user interface can adapt to your vision, hearing, motor, cognitive, or learning needs.

About accessibility settings

To accommodate your vision, hearing, motor, cognitive, or learning needs, you can customize the user interface for your GitHub Enterprise Server instance.

Managing accessibility settings

You can decide whether you want to use some or all keyboard shortcuts on the website for your GitHub Enterprise Server instance, and you can control the display of animated images.

Managing keyboard shortcuts

You can perform actions across the GitHub Enterprise Server website without using your mouse by using your keyboard instead. Keyboard shortcuts can be useful to save time for some people, but may interfere with accessibility if you don't intend to use the shortcuts.

By default, all keyboard shortcuts are enabled on GitHub Enterprise Server. For more information, see "Keyboard shortcuts."

  1. In the upper-right corner of any page, click your profile photo, then click Settings.

    Settings icon in the user bar

  2. In the left sidebar, click Accessibility.

  3. Under "Keyboard shortcuts", manage settings for your keyboard shortcuts.

    • Optionally, to disable or enable shortcut keys that don't use modifiers keys like Control or Command, under "General", deselect Character keys. If you disable character keys, you may still be able to trigger shortcuts for your web browser, and you can still trigger shortcuts for GitHub Enterprise Server that use a modifier key.
