Accessibility in Cadmus

Cadmus supports all disability and accessibility functionality native to Windows and Apple Operating Systems. This includes things like:

  • Speech to text
  • Text to speech
  • Magnification
  • Colour inversion
  • Colour contrasting


Cadmus is compatible with the dictation services built into the device being used (i.e. Mac, Windows), which you can enable via their system settings. 

  • For Mac, you'll need to enable this by navigating to System Settings > Keyboard > Dictation. Once this is turned on, you may use the shortcut listed to start voice typing in Cadmus.
  • For Windows, simply click the Windows logo key + H to set up the microphone and settings. You can then use the same shortcut to start recording in Cadmus.

To learn more about setting up and using the accessibility tools on your computer, check out Mac Accessibility or Windows Accessibility.
