How to use the Accessibility zoom feature on a Mac

- If you’re connected to a secondary display, you can take advantage of that by clicking Choose Display.
- To manage advanced Appearance, Control, and Follow Focus preferences, hit on Advanced.
- For Hover Text options, click on Options.
- Voila! You can now zoom on certain elements and/or text present on your Mac’s screen.
Zoom Accessibility preferences allow people with limited vision easily and comfortably enlarge specific macOS elements. You can set your cursor to become a magnifying glass that zooms wherever you place it. Alternatively, you can toggle zoom when you need it through keyboard shortcuts. And you can always set it to zoom in on text if that’s what you’re looking for. The options are endless!
Apple takes accessibility very seriously when it comes to its devices. Users can control Macs, iPads, and iPhones completely using their voices, without needing to click a single button. This enables people with disabilities and special needs to take full advantage of Apple devices, without needing anyone’s assistance.
