Windows OS Built In Tools

Windows 10 comes with a suite of accessibility features. For users with low vision, these include, but are not limited to:

  • Display accommodations such as large text and icons, brightness enhancement, mouse cursor enhancements and simplified views.
  • Magnifier – This allows the user to easily zoom in and out across the operating system.
  • High contrast mode and colour invert options.
  • Colour filters.
  • Narrator – A screen-reader which turns all items on the screen into spoken or braille feedback.

These can be found by searching for Ease Of Access, which is located in Settings.

Older versions of Windows such as Windows 7 also include some of these features, but how they operate may vary.
