Unlock the accessibility features on the iPhone 3GS
[ Music ]
>> The iPhone is known for it's easy to use interface, but Apple hasn't really showcased its accessibility features. I'm Brian Tong with CNET.com, and I'll show you what makes the iPhone 3S stand out for people with disabilities. So let's just jump into the settings, and then general, and then accessibility. Now, if you turn on the voiceover feature, it allows you to use gestures that physically interact with what's on screen. So I'll run my finger over any text, and it says it, then I'll double tap to select it.
>> International. General.
>> You can also use this to navigate the menus in the iPhone as well.
>> Calendar. Totals. Camera. Weather.
>> Swipe it with three fingers, goes to the next page, and you can even have text from websites read back to you.
>> Sources. Mavericks pursuing [inaudible].
>> Now, when you're writing an email, it will also tell you the letter you're on, and then say it once you've typed it.
>> If you turn the "speak / autotext" feature, it works while you type, so word suggestions from the iPhone can now be spoken to you as well.
>> Now, another accessibility feature is the zoom feature. This allows you to zoom into the screen and make it easier to read using three fingers. I'll double-tap to zoom. I can move around the screen with all three fingers, and if I double-tap and keep my fingers on the screen, I can choose my size by dragging them up or down. Now, because some of their gestures are similar, unfortunately you can't use voiceover or zoom together at the same time. Other options allow people who prefer a higher contrast to change the display to white on black. And for email users, you also have the ability to change the text size in the email app by going into your settings, then mail, contacts, and calendar, and adjusting the minimum font size. Plus you also have Apple's voice control feature built into the new iPhone 3GS to make calls and listen to your music. I'm Brian Tong for CNET.com. Now, those are just some of the accessibility features that make the iPhone 3GS the most accessible smartphone that I've seen on the market.
