There are specific accessibility features built into YouView platform which may be helpful for many users with visual impairments. However, not all YouView Accessibility settings currently work within the app. The app does have a high contrast style, which is supported and has highly visible focus highlighting when navigating the content. These features are very well supported for users when viewing programmes on the Channel 4 big screen app on a TV.
