Zoom In Back on the iBooks Store

My multi-touch book on low vision supports has been updated to reflect the releases of iOS 10, watchOS 3 and tvOS 10. You will notice that I did not mention macOS Sierra, which was also recently updated. I have decided to streamline the book a bit in order to make the file smaller and allow me to focus on a couple of sections I have wanted to add for a while: videos showcasing the impact of the technology on the lives of people with vision impairments, and a series of accessibility challenges to help readers test their skills with the various features covered in the book. Focusing on iOS (and its varieties) will also allow me to more closely follow the release schedule from Apple (macOS is usually released separately from iOS and its related hardware).

In addition to the content being completed updated to reflect the latest version of each OS, I have added four new videos covering Magnifier (my favorite new feature in iOS 10), Display Accommodations, Typing Feedback (and new highlight options for text to speech), and the Pronunciation Editor for VoiceOver. I have also done a thorough update of the Apps and Accessories sections based on the ones I have tried and found helpful since the last update of the book.

If you like the book (and want to show your support for my work in general), reviews and ratings on the iBooks Store are always appreciated. The update is free if you have purchased the book earlier – $4.99 (one trip to Starbucks) otherwise.
