More details on the company's suite of mobile apps for Android will likely be available later this year. The new design will get rolled out to users on Windows 10, Mac, iOS, and Android over the coming weeks, in case you are wondering. This update comes on the heels of the very recent Build 2017 developer conference, which concluded just last week.
Microsoft yesterday has started rolling out a new OneNote update on all devices which improves accessibility, navigation and consistency across all devices.
Enhanced usability for all: In this update, we focused on making OneNote more usable for those with disabilities-such as vision and mobility impairments. It also conducted hundreds of interviews, as well as reviewing telemetry from real-world users "to understand how to improve keyboard shortcuts and the screen reader experience". With the latest update, all of the navigation panels are on the left side which makes navigating notebooks a lot easier. This allows for easy switching between notes as well as improves the new usability with assistive technologies.
Microsoft added that the new design will establish a common OneNote experience for all users, regardless of which devices they use. This is especially useful to students now who can easily switch between devices used at school and at home. From opening the navigation bar to switching between different pages, nearly everything in the app can now be navigated with your keyboard.
