Welcome to AppleVis

Founded in 2010, AppleVis is the leading online resource for blind and low vision users of Apple products such as the Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Apple TV.

Our large and active community welcomes everyone from around the world; and draws upon a wealth of individual knowledge and experience to help each other in getting the most from Apple hardware and software.

Getting Started With Your First Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Apple Watch

If you’ve just got your first Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch 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 & iPadOS, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV 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 and iPadOS apps which 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.
