About the Book
From the VoiceOver screen reader, and support for hearing aids and closed captioning, Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS, includes features that make it easy for people with a wide range of disabilities to use the company’s popular iDevices. iOS Access for All is the most thorough, hands-on guide to iOS accessibility available. Readers will learn how to set up and use an iOS device in an accessible way, and how to get the most from the suite of apps provided by Apple, and the thousands more that are available from the App Store. The book also introduces mainstream iOS tools, including the Siri voice assistant, that weren’t designed for accessibility, but that nonetheless enhance the productivity and pleasure of disabled users.
