Accessibility

Education should be accessible to everyone.

When you choose Apple, you give students and teachers access to products with built-in accessibility features for vision, mobility, hearing, and learning.

For many years, Apple has been committed to the accessibility, offering features such as voice dictation to help students with reading or writing difficulties. Devices are also compatible with assistive technologies, such as screen readers, voice recognition software, and motor control devices, to ensure even greater accessibility for all students.

It's an extra level of care that helps the entire school community learn and create in the most functional way possible, using innovative technology tools that help them succeed in their education.

VoiceOver

VoiceOver is a screen reader that accurately describes what appears on your device's display and provides even more details about people, objects, text, and graphics.

Audio descriptions make it easier to move between items more easily, using a Bluetooth keyboard or simple gestures on a touchscreen or trackpad. You will also easily navigate even the most complex web pages.‍

Zoom

Zoom is a built-in feature that lets you magnify the content on your device's display.

You can choose between full-screen mode or picture-in-picture: in this case, the magnified area appears in a separate window, leaving the rest of the content in its original size. Zoom also works with VoiceOver to help you see and hear better what's happening on the display.‍

Voice Control

Set up simple voice commands to open and use apps in macOS.

Screen magnifier and Door detection

It's exactly what it sounds like: a magnifying glass, but digital.

If you can't read the instructions on a medicine bottle or the menu in a candlelit restaurant, you can zoom in on the text with the camera on your iPhone or iPad.

In addition, the Magnifier detection mode offers you three other useful features: with "People Detection" you can know how much space there is between you and others; "Door Detection" describes in detail what is around you and with "Image Descriptions" you can listen to additional information about the elements you frame with the camera.

Sound recognition

This feature uses on-device machine learning technology to recognize 15 different types of sounds, including alarms, appliances, and car horns, as well as someone knocking on the door or a baby crying.

Additionally, you can also train your iPhone or iPad to identify specific electronic sound alerts in your environment, such as your home's doorbell.

When the device detects the sounds you have set, it will notify you with a flash and a vibration.

Subtitles for the Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing (SDH)

In addition to the transcription of the dialogues, the subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing also provide a description of the non-verbal audio component, musical pieces, and sound effects.

They are available for movies, TV shows, videos, and podcasts, in the Apple TV app and in other apps, in more than 40 languages: just look for the titles marked with the CC icon.

And you can also customize the font and style of the text, for example by choosing larger and easier-to-read fonts.
