UI Options is a tool that allows individuals to personalize user interfaces and content to meet their needs and preferences. UI Options offers a variety of customizations including:
By using the UI Options accessible drop-down panel, individuals can choose any of the adjustments and see it applied right away. This way it's easy to experiment and discover what works, and settings can be easily reverted. By default, settings are saved using browser cookies - this way personalizations will apply automatically whenever they use your website or application.
UI Options works by adding to the existing styles of a website or application, and is designed to be integrated into a website or application's overall design with relatively minimal effort.
While UI Options can help toward satisfying some accessibility compliance (like WCAG), this is not its primary purpose. UI Options is a content and interface personalizer - helping transform an otherwise static interface into something that meets their own personal "standard". This one-size-fits-one approach helps avoid the often segregated and specialized design solutions that are intended to meet the needs of those “on the margins”. In this way, individuals experience content how they want and not necessarily the same way defined by others.
UI Options works on top of the content and interactions that are already present in your website or application, therefore it will not permanently fix any pre-existing issues related to usability, accessibility, or inclusion. The Inclusive Learning Design Handbook, and the Inclusive Design Guide are good resources that can help.

This guide, "Working with UI Options", can help you understand the cause of these problems and to fix them.
UI Options can also be extended and customized with additional functionality ( Is this the documentation? http://docs.fluidproject.org/infusion/development/tutorial-prefsFramework/CreatingAPrefsEditor.html), or customized to fit a particular theme or style ( Todo: Currently there isn't any documentation explaining how to override UIO's default style. Is this self explanatory? Does it need to be documented?).
