“iOS 7 Without the Eye” – Your Definitive Guide to iOS 7 from a Blind Person’s Perspective
Apple’s iOS, the mobile operating system powering iPhone®, iPad® and iPod Touch®, has undergone a significant revamp with the release of iOS 7. The visual changes are so striking that sighted people are naturally preoccupied with analysis and debate about the radically different look of the operating system. There are plenty of technology blogs out there that showcase some of the new features of iOS 7, but much of this coverage doesn’t cover 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 a number of excellent podcasts demonstrating iOS 7 from the perspective of VoiceOver users, and they are excellent, informative free resources. But there are people who want a text-based, searchable, authoritative resource at their fingertips that they can skim at their leisure, and consult when they need to. They want clear explanations and step by step guides to all the new features from a VoiceOver perspective.
“iOS 7 Without the Eye” is a well-written, thorough introduction to the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system. The eBook gives you a handy guide to the new OS as you install and come to grips with all that’s new and all that’s changed.
