Windows 11 accessibility features
“The way we work has changed over the last few years. We’ve gained efficiencies, but also have a lot of information competing for our attention. New hybrid workstyles, online meetings and remote collaboration offer the potential for constant distractions and mental fatigue. This is especially challenging for people with ADHD. To help navigate this new way of working, we envisioned a new Focus experience with people with ADHD to help the ADHD community, and everyone, focus and do more. “
“We made it simpler to control your notifications by adding an option to turn on Do Not Disturb, which reduces the number of notifications that can distract you. Do Not Disturb announces priority notification and alarms, and Action Center tracks all your notifications, so you can have confidence you are not missing important information.”
“And, we introduced Focus sessions, a new experience that uses proven techniques to build healthy digital habits and get more done. When you start a Focus session, Windows will turn on Do Not Disturb and turn off task bar badges. Focus is integrated with the Clock App. It launches a timer to help you focus and reminds you to take breaks, which is proven to improve productivity. It is integrated with Spotify, so that you optimize your environment with your favorite audio to get into and stay in the flow.”
