Switch Control Support in iOS 7

Sunshine Coast geek Christopher Hills explains the new accessibility improvements in iOS 7, including new switch control support. Switches (like the Tecla Shield) no longer have to rely on VoiceOver to activate, and now you can perform almost any function in the OS, including swipes, pinches, moving sliders and much more. Really great stuff.

He also got linked on Daring Fireball yesterday, and looking back at his video catalogue, it’s easy to see why. There’s some fascinating stuff in there for accessibility and using technology with a disability. Local hero!
