Apple confirmed to me Accessibility, the menu, has been moved to front page of Settings. Also, selecting acccessibility features is now part of first-run “setup buddy” process. I’m told goal of both moves was to increase visibility of accessibility feature set as a whole.

New macOS Catalina feature Apple told me they’re extremely excited for—aside from Voice Control—is something called Hover Text. Basically, hover your mouse on a piece of text anywhere in the system and it enlarges it. Fonts, colors, sizes, all customizable up to 128pt.

One other new macOS Catalina feature is Zoom Display. What this does is enable users to use Zoom on your device, but keep normal resolution on external display. Imagine giving a presentation—your text is zoomed for you but audience gets regular size.
