Microsoft decided to make Windows 11 more accessible

Published

on

Microsoft said it wanted to make the Windows 11 operating system more accessible. In terms of features, Windows 11 includes familiar tools like Narrator, Magnifier, and Closed Captioning. However, there are also innovations. For example, closed captioning settings have been greatly simplified. There are several default options for closed captioning, but you can also tweak them as you see fit.

Microsoft also introduced new contrasting themes for the visually impaired, which Microsoft says are more pleasing to watch. Windows Voice Dialing is also available for disabled users. Microsoft has redesigned its voice dialing capabilities. The voice typing feature itself is not new, but Microsoft is adding a new voice typing program for text fields.

There is also a section for accessibility settings in Windows 11. Like the rest of the Settings application, this section has been significantly redesigned to make it more attractive and easier to navigate. This section was previously called Ease of Access, but now it is called Accessibility.

Microsoft is also promising to make assistive technology “just work” in more situations. For example, Narrator can be used with Office applications if they are configured as Remote Locally Integrated (RAIL). Linux GUI applications supported by WSL also support accessibility features in Windows 11, such as screen readers and color filters.

Microsoft also announced a “modern accessibility platform” in partnership with industry leaders in assistive technology. Companies have created new APIs that have helped accessibility features work better with more applications. Microsoft has also made it easier for some applications to access certain data without requiring Windows updates. This makes it easier for developers to implement UI Automation extensions that access this data to make applications more accessible.
