Best Games on Nintendo Switch with High Text Contrast Accessibility Settings

The Nintendo Switch is a video game console released in 2017. It combines handheld and console features. You can use it on a large TV screen, or remove it from its "dock" to play in handheld mode like a Nintendo 3DS.

Following on from Nintendo's Wii and Wii U console, it offers small wireless controllers that are motion sensitive. It also has a touch screen that can be used in handheld mode.

Although it's not backwards compatible with Wii U or Wii games, many of these are being re-released on the system. It is also a good machined to access lots of smaller games made by independent developers.

As part of our accessibility review, this page lists games that have been flagged with accessibility settings in the following areas.

Reading: Each of these games has been assessed for how much reading or listening comprehension is required, and how accessible this is. Each game offers the following accessibility features and settings:

  • High Text Contrast: Text colour contrasts to background.
