OS: Windows and Mac OS
Do you wish there was a better, more accessible view for you to see Sway presentations? Sway does have an Accessibility view that displays high-contrast styles for easier reading. This view also disables any animations and supports keyboard navigation for use with screen readers. You can also use your browser’s Find box to search text in the Sway.
You can turn on Accessibility view when any Sway is opened for editing, or even in
playing mode. To activate the Accessibility view when in the Play mode, click the
More Options button, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 1.

Within the More Options drop-down that appears, choose the Accessibility view option, as shown highlighted in blue within Figure 1.
This will open the Sway into Accessibility view mode, as shown in Figure 2. To exit Accessibility view click the
More Options button, and from the drop-down menu choose the Exit Accessibility view option, as shown
highlighted in red within Figure 2.
