Accessibility features in Microsoft Classroom

Microsoft Classroom was designed to work with accessibility features on multiple browsers and operating systems. This article describes how Classroom works with accessibility features on Windows 10.

Keyboard

Use the Tab key to move between buttons, links and menu items. To select an item, use the Spacebar.

Ease of Access Center

To use Narrator, Magnifier, or high-contrast settings, open the Ease of Access Center by pressing the Windows logo key + U

Narrator

Narrator is a screen reader included in Windows. When turned on, Narrator reads text and buttons on the screen so you can use Microsoft Classroom in Internet Explorer and Edge browsers.

To turn on Narrator, press the Windows logo key + U, then turn on Narrator

Magnifier

Magnifier enlarges portions of your screen. 

To turn on Magnifier, press the Windows logo key + U, then select Magnifier, then turn on Magnifier

To zoom in, press the Windows logo key and the plus sign (+). To zoom out, press the Windows logo key and the minus sign (-). When turned on, the Magnifier toolbar will appear, which has additional controls for zooming and selecting different views. 

High contrast

To make text more visible, choose a High contrast theme in Settings. Press the Windows logo key + U, then select High contrast. Choose a theme from the list. To change the color of Text, Hyperlinks, or other element, select the color that currently appears, then select the color you’d prefer. 

When you are finished, select Apply
 
Note: High contrast is supported by Internet Explorer and Edge browsers. Other browsers may provide an alternate method to enable high contrast.
