Blindness technology expert Jonathan Mosen describes how totally blind people can use all the new features in iOS 8, thanks to Apple's VoiceOver screen reader built into every iOS device. More
When you look at that shiny iPhone or iPad with its touch screen and no physical keyboard, you may conclude there's no way a blind person could use such a device. Yet thanks to VoiceOver, a powerful screen reader built into every Apple device, many thousands of blind people are productive iOS users, taking advantage of built-in and third-party apps. Internationally renowned Blindness technology expert Jonathan Mosen, a totally blind iOS user himself, offers a unique perspective on all that's new in iOS 8. He methodically examines and describes all iOS 8's new mainstream and accessibility features from a blindness perspective. If you're an assistive technology trainer, a developer who wants to tap into this growing market, someone who knows a blind person who would benefit from the power of an iOS device, or a blind person using VoiceOver who wishes to maximise their efficiency and productivity, "iOS 8 Without the Eye" is a must-read.
