Challenge: Help someone find their voice

“Communication is a crucial part of what makes us human."

Built-in accessibility tools on Mac, iPad, and iPhone can open a world of communication for even the most hidden voice. Personal voice is one of those powerful features. Learn more about this tool, connect to those who can benefit from it, and explore additional ways technology can unlock someone's voice and allow it to be heard.
