Hands-Free: An Introduction to Switch Support on iOS Devices and Apple TV

Switch Control provides a robust solution for built-in switch access on iOS devices such as the iPad and iPhone. With tvOS 10, this support now extends to the Apple TV, which can also serve as a hub for controlling a number of smart devices compatible with Apple’s HomeKit home automation protocol (such as lights, locks and more).This session will focus on the key features of Switch Control across these two platforms, including the different access methods (auto scanning, manual scanning and single-switch step scanning), Recipes for performing repetitive actions such as flipping the pages in an ebook, Long Press for adding more than one action to a switch press, Device Switching for using one switch interface with multiple devices, Point Mode for adding switch accessibility to apps that lack it and more. A number of switch compatible apps will also be shared, along with a free ebook to continue your learning of Switch Control after the session.
