Apple Accessibility

Apple devices are built with powerful assistive technology. Including:

Switch Control that lets you use switches, a joystick or another adaptive device to control what’s on your screen.

Live Listen lets you use your Made for iPhone hearing aids and iPhone to hear more clearly in loud places. Move your iPhone closer to the people who are speaking, and the built-in microphone will pick up what they’re saying.

VoiceOver can describe what’s on your screen, even while you’re taking a photo.* And when you’re looking back at pictures, it can recognise things like facial expressions, scenes and specific objects.

If you have a learning disability like dyslexia, features such as Speak Screen, Speak Selection, Typing Feedback and Predictive Text can help by adding an auditory element to reading or writing email messages, blog posts and long documents.
