Apple’s iOS, the mobile operating system powering iPhone®, iPad® and iPod Touch®, has reached its 11th major release. It’s more powerful, more open, and boasts even more accessibility enhancements, with Braille in particular coming of age in this exciting update.
You’ve invested in a great device, why not invest just a fraction more to ensure that you’re using all its new smarts to the max? And there are a lot of them. Once again, Jonathan Mosen has written an easy-to-read yet thorough book unlocking all the magic of the latest iOS. You can buy it right here, right now, and download it instantly in PDF or ePub format. Get up and running quickly and easily with a clearly-written, comprehensive, well-structured guide to all that’s new in iOS 11, written specifically with blind people and assistive technology instructors of the blind in mind.
“iOS 11 Without the Eye” is not a getting started guide for new iOS users. It is a book for those using iOS already, who want to squeeze every bit of functionality from all the new features in this year’s release.
Jonathan Mosen has spent months delving into iOS 11 as it has taken shape, beating on the betas and writing up the advertised new features from an accessibility point of view. He’s uncovered a whole bunch of other goodies Apple didn’t talk about when they revealed iOS 11 at the WWDC keynote in June 2017. The results of all that work can be in your hands for just $19.95 USD.
Even if you’ve participated in Apple’s public beta programme, you’ll find some handy hidden tricks by reading “iOS 11 Without the Eye”.
There are plenty of technology blogs out there showcasing some of the new features of iOS 11, but much of this coverage doesn’t look at new features from the perspective of those who use VoiceOver, Apple’s built-in screen reader that makes the operating system accessible to blind people.
There are podcasts demonstrating iOS 11 from the perspective of VoiceOver users, and they are informative free resources. But there are people who want a text-based, searchable, authoritative guide at their fingertips that they can skim at their leisure, and consult when they need to. They find that an ebook lets them go at their own pace, skipping over topics that don’t interest them, concentrating on those items that are important to them. They want clear explanations and step by step guides to all the new features from a VoiceOver user’s perspective. If that’s you, you’ve found what you’re looking for.
“iOS 11 Without the Eye” is the fifth in this popular series, which thousands of blind people have used to help them become instant iOS 7, 8, 9 and 10 experts.

Free upgrade to the Second Edition
We’re proud to bring you “iOS 11 Without the Eye” at a time when you can read it to help you get used to the software as you install it. But there are going to be some important differences when you use iOS 11 on an iPhone X, and that’s not scheduled for release until November. While the current edition of the book has a chapter to help you set up your iPhone X, it is not based on first-hand experience with the device.
That’s why we’re committed to bringing you a second edition of this book once Jonathan has had hands-on time with iPhone X. Buy the book now, and you’ll get the updated book for free.
Getting your update is easy. Please read, and keep, the confirmation email Mosen Consulting sends you for instructions detailing how to get your free update when it is released.
