How to find accessible apps in the Windows Store

Did you know that you can set your preferences in the Windows Store so it's easier for you to find apps that are built with accessibility features? Here's how:

On the Start screen, tap or click Store to open the Windows Store.
  • If you are using a touchscreen, swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Settings.
  • If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, and then click Settings.
  • If you are using a Microsoft Surface and have a keyboard attached, press the Settings charm on the keyboard.

Tap or click Preferences.

Choose the "Make it easier to find apps that include accessibility features" preference to turn it on. By doing this the Windows Store will only show you apps that meet accessibility requirements (determined by the publisher) when you search or browse the Store.
