Accessibility on Mobile Devices: Accessibility Features in iOS 9 and Android-based Devices – 60 minutes
You have a smartphone, or a tablet, or maybe both – but do you really know just how smart it really is? By law, mobile devices must include support for persons with vision, hearing, learning, physical, and motor disabilities. For example, did you know that you could set your device to read a selection of text to you? Did you know that you could limit student access to just one app? There is a plethora of wonderful (and free!) accessibility features in tablets and mobile devices that are not being used because owners simply don’t know the features exist. In this webinar, participants will be guided through the accessibility features offered on iOS9 and Android-based devices. You will learn about the basics of accessibility and easy applications to teaching and learning. You will also be provided with some great resources to assist students in accessing educational content through their tablets and mobile devices.
