OneNote gets a new interface to offer cohesive user experience across all screens

19 May 2017 3

Microsoft has updated the design of their note-taking app OneNote for the Windows 10, Mac, iOS, Android, and the web too. While refreshing the design of OneNote, Microsoft focused on three key areas, these include enhancing usability for those who use assistive technologies, simplifying navigation controls, and creating consistency across devices.

OneNote has been improved with keyboard shortcuts and the screen reader experience is also improved. Microsoft has vastly improved the user experience in these two areas. Microsoft says that the enhancements have been made after taking many feedbacks from the users like how would they like to have the navigation, especially for larger notebooks.

Now all the navigation controls can be seen in one area on the left-hand side of the app. This enhances the usability of assistive technologies. The screen readers can easily navigate through the app, hence this helps the people with disabilities. Also, content is front and center, thus helping the students to focus and avoid distractions.


OneNote also gets a cohesive user experience across all screens, making it simple for users to jump from one device to the next. With this update, regardless of what device you’re using, the experience will be the same. This is going to be a very useful feature for the students as they will now be able to do the transition between their home and school devices.

The update is rolling out to all the mentioned platforms in coming weeks.
