Working for People with Sight Loss

NCBI Labs Technology Live Event 42

This week we take a look back at some of the highlights from Apple’s recent Spring Loaded event that included the launch of an all-new iMac, two new iPad Pros, an updated Apple TV, and the much anticipated AirTags. We also discuss what to expect with the release of iOS 14.5 that includes the option to unlock the iPhone with Apple Watch while wearing a face mask, new Siri voices, support for AirTags, and Apple’s App Tracking Transparency that lets you control which apps are allowed to track your activity across other companies’ apps and websites.

Joining our conversation this week is David Nason who is a member of the Editorial Team with AppleVis, a leading online resource for blind and low vision users of Apple products.

We have lots of quick tips for Android users too, including how you can use the phone’s side buttons for answering and ending calls, how you can set up the phone to read caller names aloud, and much more.
