OneNote gets an enhanced look across all platforms to improve accessibility

The update is expected to redesign the app on every platform it is available on. The new design includes enhancing usability for those who use assistive technologies, simplified navigation controls and consistency across devices.

Earlier this week, Microsoft updated its OneNote app for iOS with a significant overhaul of its user interface.

The new OneNote should be rolling out over the next few weeks.

Enhanced usability for all: In this update, we focused on making OneNote more usable for those with disabilities-such as vision and mobility impairments. While it ultimately looks pretty familiar if you're already familiar with OneNote, the new design is much more consistent across platforms with simpler navigation and extra tweaks for those with disabilities. We interviewed hundreds of people and analyzed product telemetry to understand how to improve keyboard shortcuts and the screen reader experience.

All navigation is moved to the left of the screen so that you can jump between notebooks or stories. Other consistency-oriented changes are individually minor, but they add up and result in less variation between the user experience of different OneNote variants, with Microsoft stating that this redesign should be particularly useful for students and educational workers who rely on OneNote in environments with a wide variety of devices.

While this seems like something users could take for granted, it is important to remember that for the OneNote experience to be flawless and smooth, Microsoft has to work with different operating systems, different display sizes, as well as touch-enabled and non-touch enabled screens.
