With an iPhone 4S and its accessibility settings, Tommy Edison, who has been blind since birth, is able to send Instagrams. You’ll appreciate the video he created, which is proof that the dynamic Edison doesn’t let this disability stand in his way. It shows how those who are blind or have poor vision are able to use the iPhone and its options. For additional information about Edison, go to the Assistive Technology Blog, which features information about ways technologies are helping those with disabilities.
If you have students in your classes with physical and/or learning disabilities, be sure to see if the accessibility options on your digital devices will be of help to them. Look for vision and hearing settings along with guided access, assistive touch, etc. On iPhones and iPads, you’ll find the Accessibility area by going to System and looking under General.
