Sarah Herrlinger joins Raqi Gomez and Jeff Thompson in the Blind Abilities Studio to talk about accessibility and the major refresh of the Apple.com/accessibility web site.
With the roll out of all the new Apple products, the Accessibility Team has been working hard to ensure that all the hardware is accessible and even enhancing the access along the way.
Lidar, Light Detection and Ranging, is new to the iPhone 12 Pro line and People Detection is a good example of how moving through space with accessibility is more and more a reality.
Magnifier now recognizes elements and objects in the view finder, so Voiceover users have to check out the magnifier app and take a look around.
With all the new sizes of the iPhone 12 line-up including the iPhone SE, there are sizes and features for everyone.
Sarah takes us through the development of People Detection, the enhancement of the Magnifier App an the importance of being able to individualize your accessibility features to your own needs.
You will find some Magnifier demonstrations after the interview. How to Move the Magnifier App to your Home Screen, How to Turn on the Magnifier Feature and using Magnifier to detect elements and objects.
