All The New Accessibility Features Coming To Apple Devices This Year

For blind or visually impaired people, Door Detection helps iPhone and iPad users carefully and safely navigate the world around them. The software feature uses the LiDAR scanner found on the latest ‘Pro’ version of the iPhone and iPad to map out the user’s surroundings, giving them the information they need to proceed. Door Detection can identify where a door is, whether it is open or closed, and how to open it. The feature can also read signs on and around the entrance to the user, which can provide identifying information like a room number. Apple will incorporate it in the Magnifier app, which is an accessibility app that is already available for visually impaired users, but Door Detection won’t be available until later this year.

Apple is also adding Live Captions to the iPhone, iPad, and Mac that can provide closed captioning for just about any sound that comes from the device. The company used FaceTime as an example where Live Captions can show written text displaying what a caller says, but the feature is also available for third-part sounds. That includes videos from social media applications, video conferencing apps, and streaming content that doesn’t have closed captioning. On FaceTime, the feature is even more helpful — spoken words are attributed to the speaker via text, and the user can type a response that will be digitally spoken aloud to the group. The collection of features set for release later this year will make it easier for people with disabilities to use Apple devices. Some features might eventually make their way into the main operating system.
