Some observations from the professionals at MobileREMEDIES®
iPhone’s Accessibility Tools are designed for people with special needs but some of these features can be very useful for any of us in certain situations or circumstances. The professionals at MobileREMEDIES® iPhone repair service have prepared a series of articles to help you learn more about these useful tools that have been built into your iPhone.
To read the first chapter of this series go to Using Accessibility Features, Chapter 1
Motion effects are used by Apple in some situations to simulate screen depth and by some applications to get your attention. Some people are sensitive to these effects and find them either unpleasant or annoying. You can turn off these effects or reduce the movement of some screen elements, such as:
- Parallax effect of wallpaper, apps, and alerts
- Screen transitions
- Siri animations
- Typing autocompletion
- Animated effects in Weather and Messages
To activate the Reduce Motion on your iPhone Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion, then turn on Reduce Motion. If you don’t want to automatically play effects when receiving a text Message, turn off Auto-play Message Effects.
Many videos have have audio descriptions of their content available for those who desire it. You can activate this feature as follows:
Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Audio Descriptions, then turn on Prefer Audio Descriptions.
Subtitles and closed captions
The Videos app includes an Alternate Track button that you can tap to choose subtitles and captions offered by the video you’re watching.
If you would like to activate the subtitles and closed captions Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Subtitles & Captioning, then turn on Closed Captions + SDH. This also turns on subtitles and captions in the Videos app.
To customize your subtitles and captions. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Subtitles & Captioning > Style, you can choose the Font, size, color, Background color, opacity, text opacity, edge style, and highlight.
ON/OFF switch labels
To help a user to know if a setting is ON or OFF, the iPhone can show an additional label with a vertical line that appears for “ON” and a small open circle for “OFF” rather than the standard ON/OFF switch with a green color visible for “ON’ and no color for “OFF”. This can be valuable for those with certain kinds of color blindness.
Go to Settings > General > Accessibility, then turn on the On/Off Labels switch.
