Meet the new home for accessibility in Windows
The new Accessibility pane and human icon in Windows 11 settings were designed to make it easier to find and use all the built-in accessibility features Windows offers to tailor your device to your unique needs.
See every detail—without the strain
Whether you are sensitive to light or just work long hours in front of a screen, you can use the new Dark themes and Contrast themes in Windows 11 to reduce screen brightness and increase contrast—without sacrificing aesthetics.
Zoom in on what’s important
Adjust text size, customize the color and size of the mouse cursor, and more—our display and vision settings make it easy to personalize your viewing experience. Need to look a little closer? Use Magnifier to enlarge words and images on part or all of your screen—just like a digital magnifying glass.
Distinguish colors easily
How well can you see this flower? Whether you have colorblindness, or a visual preference, with color filters you can customize your screen's palette to help you see the whole picture.
Make your PC speak for itself
Narrator provides simplified navigation and audio descriptions so you can easily interact with everything on your screen with your keyboard or preferred Braille device. So lean back and listen to the latest news or get to work on your email—no screen required.
Read and enjoy
Whether you’re deaf, hard of hearing, learning a new language, or just watching in a noisy environment, you can use captions to read the spoken words in the videos you watch. And the redesigned caption themes in Windows 11 make it easier to customize your experience, including text size, font, color, and background.
Don’t miss a beat
If you have partial hearing loss or deafness in one ear, Windows 11 can help you hear more from your computer. Mono audio combines the left and right stereo audio channels common in modern music production so you can hear every detail.
Control Windows and apps with your eyes
Eye control makes it easy and efficient to control Windows and apps with a variety of eye tracking enabled cameras and simple to use launch pad that gives your eyes the power to control anything on the screen (eye tracking hardware sold separately).
Type and navigate with your voice
Whether you're composing a document, an email, or surfing the web, Windows voice typing will convert your speech to text—and with the power of AI, it will even take care of the punctuation!
Improve reading comprehension
With Immersive Reader in Microsoft Edge you can improve reading fluency, comprehension, and focus by removing visual clutter, customizing text spacing, or zooming in on a few lines of text at a time.
Get in the zone
Focus assist blocks alerts and notifications, so you can get things done without distractions. Don't worry, if there are some people you don't want to ignore, you can add them to a special list. And when you finish focusing, you'll get a summary of what you missed.
