Two articles worth reading.
- Craig Grannell writes about Reduce Motion coming to macOS Sierra:
Although niggles remain, Apple’s iOS team has clearly worked very hard to ensure the iPhone and iPad interfaces are truly usable for all. But on tvOS, Reduce Motion does relatively little, and on the Mac, the system does not exist at all.
But, as Craig writes, it looks like Reduce Motion is coming to macOS Sierra.
- Jordan Kahn, writing for 9to5Mac, previews some new accessibility features in iOS 10, macOS, Apple TV and Apple Watch. My favorite of these is Magnifier:
In iOS 10 there is a new accessibility feature called Magnifier that lets you use the camera as a magnifying glass with a custom UI. The magnifier UI gives you access to the camera flash, and the ability to lock focus and grab a freeze frame. You can also adjust color filters to increase contrast for easier viewing.
Magnifier will no doubt help a lot of people. Good to see Apple still paying attention to accessibility.
