A system is described that enables a computing device (e.g., a mobile phone, smart watch, tablet computer, etc.) to detect behavioral cues from a user and recommend relevant accessibility settings for the user based on the detected behavioral cues. The computing device may use various sensors to detect accessibility-related behavioral cues and analyze the detected behavioral cues to identify a relevant accessibility setting. For example, a computing device may use a radio detection and ranging (radar) system to detect behavioral cues from a user as inputs and may identify a relevant accessibility setting that benefits the user based on the detected behavioral cues. A behavioral cue input refers to any touch input or non-touch input detected by the computing device including, for example, any behavioral cues performed by a user using any finger, hand, body part, stylus, or any other object that may be detected by the computing device as described herein. In response to detecting a behavioral cue, the computing device may make the user aware of a relevant accessibility setting (e.g., identified based on the detected behavioral cue). For instance, the computing device may output a notification recommending activation of the identified relevant accessibility setting and/or may direct the user to an accessibility setting page of the identified relevant accessibility setting. In some examples, the accessibility setting page may contain a recommended setting determined based on the detected behavioral cue. In some examples, the accessibility setting page may contain a tutorial which may interact with the user to walk the user through the accessibility setting.
