Family Hub is for everyone. Change Family Hub's accessibility settings so that anyone can enjoy the fun! Screen Reader will read the screen, and the speed of the speech can be adjusted. Font sizes can be made bigger or smaller. Grayscale and Negative Color are also display options available, and Accessible Screen toggles the top of the screen to a lower and easier to reach position.

Screen reader will read aloud each item that is touched on the Family Hub screen to assist the vision-impaired. To select an item when Screen reader is enabled, double-touch it. And if you'd rather talk to Family Hub instead of have it talk to you, then you can always use Bixby.
