    How to Change Narrator Verbosity Level about Text and Controls in Windows 10


    Narrator is a screen-reading app built into Windows 10.

    Narrator lets you use your PC without a display or mouse to complete common tasks if youre blind or have low vision. It reads and interacts with things on the screen, like text and buttons. Use Narrator to read and write email, browse the internet, and work with documents.

    Specific commands let you navigate Windows, the web, and apps, as well as get info about the area of the PC you're in. Navigation is available using headings, links, landmarks, and more. You can read text (including punctuation) by page, paragraph, line, word, and character as well as determine characteristics like font and text color. Efficiently review tables with row and column navigation.

    Narrator provides five verbosity levels that impact the amount of information you hear when Narrator reads text, such as web sites, and when you interact with controls.
    • Verbosity level 1: Text only - This level lets you read quickly without hearing details about text that you don’t need to know. For example, Narrator doesn’t announce links, doesn’t describe text formatting, and lets you work very quickly with an application that you know well. This level provides an ideal experience as you read text-heavy articles, books, and web sites.
    • Verbosity level 2: Some control details - This level provides more information than level 1 does as you interact with an application. It’s best if you’re familiar with an application and only need guidance with some controls.
    • Verbosity level 3: All control details - This is the default level for Narrator. It provides a full reading experience along with all details about an application’s controls as you interact with them.
    • Verbosity level 4: Some text details - This level provides most attributes and information about text. It’s best in situations when you’re writing text, such as when you create a document.
    • Verbosity level 5: All text details - This level gives you complete details about text, such as heading level, font type, size, formatting, bullet shape, list type, and more. It’s especially useful when you proofread or edit a document.
