I always find that there is a 'theme of the week' for client appointments, and this week's has related to vision impairment and dictation using the iPad, iPhone and Mac.
The iPad and iPhone (and Mac) have some amazing features for those with difficulty viewing and reading the content of the screen, and there is one in particular that will be of particular benefit to the clients I saw this week.
It is the Speak Screen feature, where you can request that the content of the screen currently in view is read to you.

Your iPad and iPhone has some special features that can be activated by 'double-pressing' or 'triple-pressing' on the Home Button.
Here are some past Handy Hints on the topic of the Home Button, and all the different things it can do.
For many people that we see at iTandCoffee, the 'double-press' or 'triple-press' actions are quite difficult due to the speed with which this multiple press must be performed.
It is possible to adjust a Setting, allowing for slower 'multiple-pressing' of the Home button.
This Setting is an Accessibility feature, found in Settings -> General -> Accessibility.
There are a couple of sections in Accessibility which deal with how you 'Interact' with your device. Under Interaction, you will find the Home Button option.
Tap on this option to see various options to do with pressing/tapping your Home Button.
The first section is Click Speed. Choose Slow or Slowest to allow slower 'multiple-pressing' of the Home Button.
You will then notice that you won't have to be quite as fast with your double and triple clicking.
