Customize accessibility settings on your phone

Accessibility settings menu on a Galaxy phone

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 set it to 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 and software version.

Available Accessibility Settings

From Settings, swipe to and touch Accessibility. Then, touch an option:

  • Screen reader: You can turn on Voice Assistant to provide spoken feedback when you make selections on your phone, and go through a tutorial on using your phone. You can also adjust even more settings like Text-to-speech, Vibration Feedback, and more.

  • Visibility enhancements: Make fonts stand out more, turn on Negative colors, Remove animations, and more.

  • Hearing enhancements: You can use Sound detectors to receive alerts when your phone hears the doorbell or a baby crying, or mute all sounds on your phone, among other settings.

  • Interaction and dexterity: Enhance or replace touch interactions and other controls. Some features include Universal switch to control your phone with custom switches, and Assistant menu to turn on functions that help users with reduced dexterity.

  • Advanced settings: Manage Direct access features, like using the Power and Volume keys to quickly open Accessibility settings, and other advanced functions.

  • Installed services: Accessibility services you download and install from Play Store or Galaxy Apps will appear in this section.
