Accessible Aging: Building independence and freedom with iPad and iPhone.
It can be challenging to share information about the accessibility features in iOS in a way that our aging family and friends can navigate. Web links can be overwhelming and not necessarily support the unique need. This resource was created straight from the heart. Independence and connections are so important as we support our friends and family members with accessibility needs. Working with our own family members to support their levels of independence, we found it challenging to capture the power of iOS accessibility features in a way that our family members could navigate. It is our hope that this resource will help share the power of iOS accessibility in a “one-stop” format to support dynamic accessibility needs. This resource also has a printable version linked in the book.
About This Resource
“Don’t let temporary, permanent, or circumstantial disability put a damper on your freedom to connect and communicate with others! iPad and iPhone are amazing personalized devices equipped with build accessibility features to support you in many tasks and can help you sustain a level of independence right for you! There are 4 general access categories that Apple uses to structure its accessibility features. Vision, Motor, Hearing, and General. We added a Communication category too. Within each general category, you will find the accessibility features that can transform your independence. Each feature is described in a 4 part fashion (What, How, Learn, and Try). On each feature page, you will learn about what it is, who can benefit, Apple Support page link with explicit instructions, suggestions on what to focus on, and quick steps to move forward and try the feature.”
We hope this resource has an impact!
