Welcome to AppleVis

A community-powered website for blind and low-vision users of Apple's range of Mac computers, the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Apple TV and Apple Watch.

AppleVis strives to empower the community by offering multiple pathways to access and share relevant and useful information. As a community, we seek to encourage and support people in exploring the many ways in which these mainstream products and related applications can offer opportunities to the vision-impaired for personal enrichment, independence and empowerment.

AppleVis also offers resources and mechanisms for raising awareness of the accessibility of Apple products and related applications, and for promoting further advancement in accessibility.

Getting Started With Your First Mac, iOS Device Or Apple Watch

If you’ve just got your first Mac, iOS device or Apple Watch, congratulations!

To help you get started, we’ve compiled a list of selected content from right across the AppleVis website which we believe will answer many of your initial questions and familiarize you with the accessibility features of your new Apple product.

Please note that these lists contain only a taste of the help and information that is available on this website, but they do provide a great place to start learning about your new Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or Apple Watch.

Also be sure to browse our iOS and Mac App Directories, in which you will find information submitted by our community on the accessibility of 1000s of applications.

If you are looking for iOS apps that have been developed specifically for blind or low vision users and which will help you in your daily life, you can find our list of these here.
