New to VoiceOver on Mac?
Learn and practice the basics for controlling your Mac using VoiceOver—the screen reader built into macOS.
Use familiar gestures
VoiceOver in macOS uses many of the same gestures you know from iOS and iPadOS—for example, touch the trackpad to hear the item in the VoiceOver cursor.
Work the way you like
Customize VoiceOver using VoiceOver Utility. Change the VoiceOver voice, connect braille devices, set options for how you navigate with VoiceOver, and more.
What’s new in macOS Sonoma
VoiceOver in macOS Sonoma gives you more ways to enhance your workflow, including options for automatically switching between groups of VoiceOver settings based on what you’re doing in an app, Siri voices that sound natural and expressive when speaking quickly, support for two-dimensional refreshable braille displays, and more.
