Low Vision Accessibility on Apple Products
Hi AppleVis, I Upgraded to iOS 7 and really wish I hadn't! Big issues for me are
1. The keyboard has been replaced by a very 'thin' text whereas it was bold previously.
2. Sent text messages are now white text on green or blue whereas it was black text before and much more visible. 3. The calendar, like the keyboard , appear smaller and in a plain text whereas before they were bold numbers.
4. Voice-over sounds like it's coming through cotton wool and muffled. Not like it was with iOS 6.
Hope this doesn't sound like a knee-jerk reaction but I think I've done everything to try and get the best out of it. Have gone to settings to set the largest and boldest text but this only works in email and texts. It doesn't improve the text in calendar, the keyboard or alarm settings + possibly other things. Sorry to say that I can hardly recommend an iPhone to someone with some useful sight like I could yesterday! Any pointers to improving the iPhone visibility most welcome. I plan to go into an apple store tomorrow to see if anything can be done about the keyboard especially but also to make the point that I bought this phone because of its access ability features and now they simply don't work for me. Regards, Geoff
