The Essential Apps: Settings for Accessibility

As accessible as it is personal, the new Smartphones are very handy for those who need glasses or more – if only we knew where they were hidden and how to use them! The world’s most personal device was designed for every person. So a person who’s blind can take group selfies. A person who’s deaf can call Mum from overseas. And a person who can’t move from the neck down can send text messages to friends. Most of us won’t need those such drastic options but it is handy to have the writing larger, or tell your Smartphone what you want instead of playing with the screen trying to locate the right spot.


Please be aware that different age & models of iPhones and Android phones will have different features. The tutor will support you to get the best from your phone and direct you to suitable alternatives where required. The tutor will provide all attendees with an up to date list of websites where you can find support and additional information.
