Microsoft: Accessibility is a focus in Windows 11

  • Windows 11, announced at the end of June, is being designed “with accessibility in mind”.
  • The OS will include dark, light and customisable themes, and the improved Closed Captions will be more customisable too.
  • Microsoft have rebranded the old “Ease of Access” setting to the more idiomatic “Accessibility”, to make it easier to find your settings.
  • Like Windows 10, the new OS will include assistive tech including Narrator, Magnifier, Closed Captions, Windows Speech Recognition and Windows Voice Typing.
  • Finally, Windows 11 will support Linux applications via something called WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux), which is being carefully developed to integrate with assistive technologies.
