Every new release of iOS for Apple devices brings a host of new features and functionality, but trying to learn what is new can be quite daunting.  Hosts Nancy and Peter Torpey talk with Shelly Brisbin about the updated version of her easy to follow reference book "iOS Access for All" that details what you need to know to work effectively with iOS 13 devices.

Have you ever dropped a tiny screw in the grass and tried to find it?  In her latest book “31 Cool Things You Can Do With iOS”, Judy Dixon explains how your iPhone can help.  Hosts Nancy and Peter Torpey talk with Judy about this book and others she has written about using an iPhone with little or no vision, including one on getting sighted assistance.

The American Foundation for the Blind's (AFB) VisionAware technology review by Steve Kelley presents information on Android's newest Select to Speak feature.

Like the Speech setting in iOS, Select to Speak enables a user to use Talkback to read a selected portion of text, without turning Talkback on and changing the other gestures, so it is very convenient for users who are not routinely screen reader users.

To find and change this setting you will need to go into Accessibility settings.

Hosts Nancy and Peter Torpey talk with Shelly Brisbin, author of the book “iOS Access for All:  The Comprehensive Guide to Accessibility for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch”.  The book is an excellent reference guide to accessibility features in iOS devices and also gives step by step instructions for using these features with many popular apps.
