Groups have had a positive response to accessibility as a meeting topic. Apple’s Accessibility home page says that the true value of a technology is not measured by how powerful it is, but by how much it empowers the user, and every Apple product contains amazing and empowering accessibility features right out of the box. From being able to take a perfect group selfie without being able to see the screen, to VoiceOver, display accommodations, Live Listen, closed captioning that displays far more than text, LED iPhone notifications, Switch Control, customized gestures, AssistiveTouch, Guided Access, typing feedback, text-to-speech, fitness algorithms for wheelchair users, and more, there are features to make every user’s tasks easier.

Dave Mara, Senior Systems Engineer for Apple, accomplished artist, and user group favorite recently posted an accessibility link with some great tips regarding ways to check if movies and TV shows have accessibility features in the Apple TV app, including audio descriptions, closed captions, and subtitles for folk who may be deaf or hard of hearing. Your members can check from their iPhone or iPad, smart TV or streaming device, Mac, AppleTV, or PC in the iTunes Store, and there are some great tips for how to turn the features on and off as well.

This could make for a great quick preso at your next user group meeting.
