Time: 1:00 – 2:00 pm

Apple logoThis webinar in part of a series focused on the built-in accessibility features included with the major technology operating systems: Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, and Google/Android. 

Accessibility features are meant to make the use of technology less challenging for those with disabilities. Common accessibility features include screen readers, text-to-speech, closed-captioning, voice control and keyboard shortcuts. Additional access features are designed to work with various assistive technologies including switch technologies.

This first webinar in the series starts off with the operating systems associated with the highly popular Apple devices, iPhones (iOS), iPads (iPadOS), Apple Watch (WatchOS), as well as their Macintosh (MacOS) devices.
