[[!meta title="Accessibility"]]
Tails uses the <span class="application">GNOME Desktop</span> that
provides many accessibility features as documented in the [GNOME Access
Guide](http://library.gnome.org/users/gnome-access-guide/2.32/gnome-access-guide.html).
For a summary of those features, read the [quick
reference](http://library.gnome.org/users/gnome-access-guide/2.32/gnome-access-guide.html#quickref)
section of this guide.
To **hear screen elements spoken to you** or **magnify the screen**, see
the [GNOME
Orca](http://library.gnome.org/users/gnome-access-guide/2.32/gnome-access-guide.html#enable-orca)
section of this guide.
