Accessibility settings menu on a Galaxy S10+

Your phone is ready to lend a helping hand. It has accessibility settings for those with limited sight, hearing impairments, or difficulties with interaction and dexterity. For example, you can make it read messages aloud or light up whenever it detects a startling noise. There are also other settings and customizations available for those who struggle with dexterity. 

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider, software version, and phone model.

Available Accessibility settings

Having some trouble using your phone? No worries, there's plenty of features to help you out. From Settings, search for and select Accessibility. Then, choose your desired option:

  • Screen reader: Turn on Voice Assistant so your phone can provide spoken feedback when you select items or go through tutorials. You can also adjust even more settings like Text-to-speech, Vibration Feedback, and so on.
