Current augmented reality (AR) devices set the focal length to a default that enables normal viewing but is unsuitable for users that need reading glasses. To read text displayed via AR, the user needs to move the glasses. This disclosure describes software that provides a setting that enables a user to specify that they use reading glasses. The user can then choose interface options via a sub-setting for voice or text. The software can be made available via an application programming interface (API). Providing the settings via an API and/or a device operating system can improve the accessibility of AR applications without requiring individual app developers to modify their applications.
