New Accessibility Options for Low Vision

In Apple’s latest software update for iOS and iPadOS, the accessibility options were moved to the main root menu in the settings app. The options were previously located in settings under the ‘general’ options.

Educators and students needing accessibility features for low vision will find new options and some options that have been retitled. For instance, ‘Spoken Content’ is now used in place of ‘Speech.’

The zoom feature has had a makeover and now provides more options.
