Accessimobility

When the original came out, it was pretty impressive. Every subsequent iteration has featured improvements of varying levels of impressiveness. The latest version, though, has bowled me over.

I’m not talking about faster speeds, bigger storage, or any new fangled gizmos or geegaws. I’m talking about VoiceOver in the iPhone.

Watch the video to get the low-down. Then read this first-hand account of using an accessible touch-screen device.

That’s quite a design challenge: an accessible touch-screen device! I doff my hat in the general direction of the Apple engineers who rose to this challenge.

Speaking of exciting developments in the world of accessibility…

The second Accessibility 2.0 conference will be taking place in London on the 22nd of this month. It was a cracking event last year and, judging by the line-up, this year is going to be a winner too. Grab a ticket now.
