Accessibility View in Sway

Explore Accessibility view in Sway.


Product/Version: Microsoft Sway

OS: Works in a browser, or as an app

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.

While viewing any Sway presentation using Accessibility view, you can perform the following extra actions:

  1. To search for text within a Sway, use your browser’s Find feature.
  2. To navigate through selectable options, press the Tab key. To get to the option you want to access, repeatedly press the Tab key.
  3. To zoom a selected image in your current Sway, press Spacebar, or the Enter key. To close the image and go back to the Sway, press the Esc key.
Note: More Accessibility features are available within Sway, as explained on the Accessibility features in Sway page on the Microsoft Office site.
