The Account Settings link allows to customize many of your viewing options within TCU online. Remember, the preferences you set are personal and will not impact other users. Upon selecting Account Settings from the Personal Settings drop-down menu, located by selecting your Name on the minibar, you will be taken to the Account Settings Homepage. Your preferences in TCU Online are broken up into three tabs.
We recommend that you adjust the settings available in the Account Settings tool to meet your personal needs. Here are some recommendations:
Use the Font Size options to adjust the appearance of text in TCU Online. The options available are Small, Medium, Large, and Huge. These changes will alter instructions and navigation bar text.
Many screen reader and keyboard-only users select the Turn off rich text editor and view source option. This option simplifies form pages, while still allowing users to upload HTML content authored in an external editor.
Some tools automatically mark content as read as you scroll it into view. If you use an assistive technology such as a screen reader then you may wish to disable this feature by checking the box for Do not automatically mark items as read as the page scrolls.
Select the option, Optimize video presentation for programmatically-driven assistive technologies, to enable detection of embedded videos.
Set preference for Always show the Discussions List pane. Selecting this option will pin the Discussions List pane in the View Topic and View Thread pages. Accessibility Tip: Clear the Always show the Discussions List pane option to simplify the layout of discussion lists.
Select either Grid View or Reading View. Grid View will display the discussion posts in the traditional Grid View, with post subjects displaying in a grid. Reading View (default) will display the discussion posts in Reading View, where the entire text of a post displays for all posts.
Set preference for Include original post in reply. Accessibility Tip: Some users also Include original post in reply so they don’t have to move between discussion messages as frequently.
Set preference for When creating a new thread, subscribe to the thread by default.
