Nearly all Windows versions have included accessibility features of some sort or the other, and the latest Windows 10 is no different. One such accessibility enhancement is the Narrator, which can automatically read aloud all the on-screen elements such as menu options, general text, and button labels. All you have to do is navigate the OS using your mouse cursor, and narrator will take care of the rest, highlighting and reading aloud the screen element(s) the mouse pointer is currently focused on. But the question is, how do you enable it?
The answer is simple – with a few mouse clicks. That’s all you have to do to enable narrator in Windows 10. What’s more, you can also tweak additional settings like reading speed & pitch, and narrator voice. Interested? Jump over to the other side of the break to know how to turn on narrator in Windows 10.
