Shortly after announcing the release of the new Apple TV and launching the tvOS operating system, Apple has today published a new webpage detailing the accessibility features of the new set-top box.
According to the Vision section of the tvOS Accessibility webpage, the new Apple TV will include both VoiceOver and Zoom, as well as a number of other standard accessibility features for blind and low vision users.
For VoiceOver, one can navigate the tvOS interface using already-familiar gestures--including taps, flicks, and the rotor. To enable VoiceOver during the setup process, simply triple-click the Menu button three times.
According to Apple's website, Zoom magnifies content up to 15 times its native size and is accessed using the Siri remote. To have an item spoken to you, double-click the Siri button.
Apple has also included Bold Text, Reduce Contrast, Reduce Motion, Closed Captioning, and an Accessibility Shortcut as features in tvOS--all of which are detailed on Apple's website.
