Screen readers are text-to-speech software that allow people who cannot perceive what is on the screen to access web content through a speech synthesizer or braille display. Standard-Knapp strives to ensure that our web content is accessible to screen readers.
Smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices frequently provide an array of accessibility features.
VoiceOver for iOS and TalkBack for Android are the screen readers that come built-in. To turn on VoiceOver, go to “Settings”, then “General”, to “Accessibility”, and then turn “VoiceOver” on. You can set the “Accessibility Shortcut” to “VoiceOver” from the “Accessibility” page in order to triple-click the “Home” button to toggle VoiceOver on and off. TalkBack has a similar feature.
“Zoom”, “Magnifier”, “Invert Colors”, “Color Filters”, and “Reduce White Point” are other features and tools on iOS that you can use. These are also available through the “Accessibility Shortcut”.
