Adjust accessibility settings on Family Hub

A Samsung Family Hub refrigerator with the Accessibility icon highlighted

Change your Family Hub's accessibility settings, so everyone can enjoy the fun. The Screen Reader feature will read the screen, and you can adjust the speed and size of text. Grayscale and Negative Color options are also available, and Accessible Screen toggles the top of the screen to a lower and easier-to-reach position.
