IOS 7 Adds Accessibility By Allowing Someone to Use their Device through Head Movements


According to Mac Rumors, one of the new accessibility features in IOS 7 is the ability to use the device by moving your head. Many people with physical disabilities are unable to use the traditional gestures because they lack the hand dexterity or use of their hands entirely. One solution to this problem has been accessibility with switches. These devices require much less dexterity, and they can be programmed to do multiple things. For those who can not use a switch, the ability to use your head instead to tell the IOS device what you want could be life changing.
