The narrator is one feature of Windows 11 that can read text on the screen to help you navigate your computer.
The Narrator feature will be very useful if you have limited vision or are blind. The narrator allows those with visual impairments to operate a computer without a mouse to perform routine activities. In addition, the Narrator also can read and interact with text and buttons on the screen. Read and write emails, surf the internet, and more.
The narrator also includes scan modes for navigation and reading. It allows you to navigate Windows 11 using only the up and down arrows on your keyboard. Braille displays can also navigate your PC and read the text.
