Use the Accessibility Options keyboard shortcut

Learn how to turn assistive features on and off quickly with the Accessibility Options window.


Every Mac comes standard with assistive technologies that can help you use macOS.

macOS features an Accessibility Options window that lets you quickly turn on or off common accessibility features like Zoom, VoiceOver, Sticky Keys, and more. You can bring up this window anytime with a simple shortcut.

  • On the built-in keyboard of a Mac notebook computer, press Function-Option-Command-F5.
  • On a Mac notebook with Touch ID (power button)*, triple-press Touch ID.
  • On an external keyboard, press Option-Command-F5.

 If you accidentally activate the Accessibility Options window, click Done to close it, or click anywhere outside of the window.
