How to Easily Manage Accessibility Features in Windows 10

If you have trouble using a computer because of vision, hearing, or typing difficulties, don’t worry! Windows 10 offers a range of features that can make browsing the web or enjoying your favorite content a breeze.

Open the Accessibility Settings

To begin, you need to find the Accessibility settings. You can do this by going to your Start menu and selecting “Settings” from the menu, as shown below:

Once you have the Settings window open, click on the “Accessibility” button, and you’re ready to customize your options.


Controlling Your Settings

When it comes to managing the settings on your Windows 10, there are some familiar options from previous versions, as well as a few new additions that can be helpful for people with visual or hearing impairments.

If you’re working with someone who has specific conditions, there are five key features designed to assist them. These features can be found in the Narrator, Magnifier, High Contrast, Keyboard, and Mouse tabs.


The Narrator feature does exactly what its name suggests – it provides a voice that will read aloud any text you highlight or click on with your mouse.


Hey there! Welcome to the place where you can tweak various settings and make some cool changes. You’ve got control over things like the voice of the Narrator, how loud it speaks, and whether it kicks off automatically when you hover over or click on an object.

Let’s talk about the Magnifier:

The Magnifier is designed to help folks who have trouble with their vision. Maybe the small text on the screen is hard to read, or they prefer seeing images in greater detail. This feature comes in handy by blowing up the text and images for a better view.


Here’s where you can manage the settings for the magnifier. You have the power to choose how it appears and functions – whether as a window in the top half of your screen, a floating lens, or by magnifying the entire screen all at once.

If you’re colorblind or have trouble distinguishing between different colors, this is the section for you. Here, you can modify the settings that control how windows are displayed on your desktop, making it easier for you to see and interact with them.


Hey there! So, guess what? We’ve got some awesome options for making things easier on your eyes. If you’ve got color blindness, no worries! We’ve got different layouts that cater to different types of color blindness. And hey, if you prefer everything in black and white, we’ve got you covered too!

Now, let’s move on to the keyboard section. If typing is a pain due to hand strain or arthritis, don’t worry, we’ve got your back. In this section, you can activate cool features like Sticky Keys, which will make typing a whole lot easier for you.


Do you ever find it tiring to keep pressing down the Shift or Ctrl key while typing? Well, with sticky keys, you won’t have to strain your hands anymore. Instead of holding down the modifier key before pressing another key, all you have to do is tap it once, and it will stay active until you combine it with another corresponding key.

Now let’s talk about the mouse.

There aren’t many customizable settings in this section, but it’s still important to know what options are available and how to use them.


In Windows 10 Ease of Access, there are two important settings you can adjust: the cursor size and the contrast. By changing the contrast, the cursor will automatically adjust its color to the opposite one of whatever it’s hovering over. This makes it much easier to see in low light situations.

If you find using a computer challenging, Ease of Access in Windows 10 can help. It allows you to see, hear, and click on everything on your screen with ease. For more information about the other features, watch our helpful video on our YouTube channel.
