Apple has recently updated its Apple Watch Technology page, indicating that the Apple Watch will have VoiceOver, Zoom, and Dynamic Type support built-in.
Under the heading "A more personal experience. For every person," Apple states the following:
Apple Watch comes with some powerful accessibility features. Like Zoom, a built-in magnifier. VoiceOver, so you can hear what’s on your screen. And Larger Dynamic Type, which makes text easier to read. And they’re all built in and easy to turn on, either through the device itself or by using the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.
This recent update from Apple marks the first time that information about the watch's accessibility features has been made available to the public. While there were rumors about Apple Watch's accessibility features circulating previously, we are pleased that Apple has provided the community with a definitive answer as to what accessibility features the watch will have.
Apple Watch pre-orders will begin at 12:01 a.m. PDT on April 10, 2015, and the watch will go on sale on April 24, 2015. More information about Apple Watch is available on Apple's official Watch site. Be sure to check back with AppleVis in the coming weeks, as we plan to bring hands-on reviews and podcasts demonstrating the watch once it becomes available.
