Embodiments disclosed herein include methods and apparatuses for providing security to computer users with disabilities, who configure their computers to personalize output in a fashion that enables the user to more easily understand the content of the output. While previously a computer configured to personalize output accordingly may have served as a source of disability information to unauthorized parties accessing the computers, embodiments disclosed herein configure computers for personalization without leaving thereon a record how the personalization was specified during the configuration process. Thus, an unauthorized party gaining access to the user's computer would find it very difficult, if not impossible, to determine the user's disability from an inspection of the computer, so the user is much less likely to become a victim of fraud based on an unauthorized discovery of information regarding vulnerabilities.
