This is the seventh edition of my book, and it’s fully updated for iOS 13.2. The book has grown along with Apple’s mobile software – it’s just shy of 184,000 words, and includes 11 chapters. But more important than word or page count, iOS Access for All remains the most comprehensive iOS accessibility resource anywhere!
iOS Access for All guides you step-by-step through Apple tools designed or people with blindness, low-vision, hearing impairments, and motor disabilities. Readers also learn how to make the most of all apps installed by Apple, along with iOS. You will also find reviews of over 100 outstanding App Store apps that happen to be accessible.
- New chapter, and streamlined organization: For the iOS 13 edition, there’s a brand-new chapter focusing exclusively on iPadOS, a version of iOS that makes the most of the power and extra screen real estate on Apple’s tablets. Other chapters have been moved or reorganized to better address the growing iOS feature set.

- More for the mainstream: Important new features in iOS 13 include new text editing gestures, quick path typing (VoiceOver accessible, by the way), beefed-up Shortcuts, redesigned share sheets, changes to location services, and lots more. The new book puts it all into an accessible context.
