VoiceOver is a handy accessibility feature on the Mac for those with visual impairments. It reads out items on the screen so that you can easily navigate and get the most out of your Mac. Here's how to enable and use it!
Delving further into visual accessibility, you can increase contrast on your iPhone, so that somewhat transparent options show up more clearly, and you can also reduce motion, so the apps on your Home screen won’t move around so much and button actions won’t be as pronounced.
If you find the text on iPhone and iPad difficult to read and can't find the buttons to navigate through your device, you can enable button shapes to help you out. You can also enable on/off labels, which is great for folks who can't see green. Apple is, as always, incredibly accessible.
iOS 10 brought a ton of changes with its release, one of the biggest being the change in the Home button's behavior. You can now unlock your iPhone or iPad with Touch ID, just by resting your thumb or finger on the Home button (the Lock screen must be awake). If you don't like it, you can turn it off!
In iOS 10, inverting colors and implementing grayscale have all been consolidated under Display Accommodations in Accessibility, and Apple has added the ability to activate color filters to help people with even more types of color blindness. Activating these filters is as easy as flipping a switch, so here we go!
So you shelled out a few hundred dollars for your new iPhone 7 and don’t want to spend too much on a case? Not to worry. There are a ton of great cases you can get for under $20, including some from some of the best brands.
