Turn on High Contrast Text on HTC One M8
Thor, Ash0hley, Jen M
Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how you can turn on the high contrast text on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button, located on top of the phone
Once the phone has been activated, we'll see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards
Once the phone has been unlocked, we'll see the home screen. At the bottom, there will be icons.
Now, we need to find the "Settings" menu
To do that, hold at the top of the screen, and swipe downwards.
Now that the notification panel has appeared, here is the icon we're looking for
In the top right-hand corner of the screen, there is a white cog icon. This is our settings icon. Press down on it, and it will open up our "Settings menu".
We can see it says the word "Settings" in the top left-hand corner of the screen
Now we'll scroll down until we get to the "PERSONAL" section
It says the word "PERSONAL" in a gray bar.
In this section, we are looking for the word "Accessibility"
Next to this word is an icon of a hand. Press down on this option. It will open our "Accessibility" menu.
Now, scroll down until we get to the "SYSTEM" section
It says the word "SYSTEM" in a gray bar.
In this section, we want "High contrast text"
When turned on, this option makes the text more of a high contrast. It makes it sharper, bolder, and it makes it stand out more.
Let's activate the option by pressing down on the box on the far right-hand side of the screen
Press down on the box. The text now has a higher contrast. We can also see the word "SYSTEM" in the gray bar, now has a black outline, instead of white text.
We can turn this option off so that we can see the difference
Look at the word "SYSTEM" and we will see the change when we turn the option off. Press down on the box. It takes away the check mark. Now we can see that the contrast is lower. It's a lot less sharp, and a lot less defined.
We can turn it on once more, by pressing down on the box
The box will turn green with a white check in it. We can see that the high contrast is evident.
This then, concludes our tutorial on how to turn on or off the high contrast text on an HTC One M8
