New York (The Verge) — Windows 10 gets accessibility improvements to cursor, screen reader, and more trib.al/Dhc9FPp.
Microsoft is adding new accessibility features to Windows 10 in the May 2020 update, adding improved text cursor settings, better text-to-speech offerings, and enhancements to the screen reader.
Microsoft had previously offered tools to adjust the size and color of the standard mouse cursor. Now it’s bringing similar options to the text cursor, allowing users with impaired vision to adjust the size, thickness, and color of the text cursor, along with adding a new, larger indication to easily find it on-screen. Similarly, the Magnifier feature will follow the text cursor in the middle of the display, just like it does with the regular mouse cursor. — Chaim Gartenberg/@verge
