    New Microsoft Paint Accessibility Features in Windows 10 version 1903


    We know that Microsoft Paint (MSPaint) is well-loved by customers and we’re pleased to announce new accessibility features coming to Microsoft Paint with the release of the Windows 10 May 2019 Update.

    We’ve introduced the keyboard as a primary input mechanism. Microsoft Paint is already fully functional with mouse and multi-touch tablet input, but customers will now be able to use the app and draw with only their keyboard.













    Along with full keyboard input support, we’ve made improvements to the way Paint interacts with Screen Readers, like Windows Narrator, which some users might find improves their overall experience with the app.

    We look forward to hearing your feedback on these features and the app overall. Let us know what’s working and what else we can do to improve. Thank you!

    This seems to indicate a welcome change of heart regarding the future of MS Paint. I see that MS have also removed the 'Product alert' that appeared in 1809.

    That is very welcome. But do you think they will remove the Edit with Paint 3D icon if we uninstall Paint 3D? Or (as i'm expecting) will it still be there and just take you to the store to re-install Paint 3D?

    I'm glad too, for me paint is like the 'notepad, of the graphics world.
