Use a screen reader to work with multiple accounts in To-Do

This article is for people with visual impairments who use a screen reader program with the Office products and is part of the Office Accessibility content set. For more general help, see Office Support home.

Use To-Do for Windows 10 with your keyboard and a screen reader to work with multiple user accounts. We have tested it with Narrator and JAWS, but it might work with other screen readers as long as they follow common accessibility standards and techniques. You'll learn how to add user accounts, switch between accounts, and sign out of an account.
