A new update to the Amazon Alexa App provides improved accessibility for people with vision impairments.

The new Alexa App, which is available for iOS and is coming soon on Android, features light and dark modes, as well as text scaling for improved accessibility.

Using their mobile device settings, users can now choose between light and dark modes for benefits such as increased readability and colour contrast.

Dark mode offers benefits such as screen viewing comfort in low-light environments and improved device battery life, while light mode offers better readability and colour contrast that stands out in high-light environments.

Visually impaired users can set their font size to be larger than the standard size.

The improved accessibility features are currently being rolled out on iOS devices worldwide and both will be coming soon on Android devices.

All existing Alexa App customers should have access to the update by the end of the month.
