Smart Phone Accessibility

Are you using your iPhone or Android to its fullest potential? You might not be taking advantage of the free opportunities to personalize your smart phone or iPad.  Not only can these devices connect to hearing aids, but you can change the text size and visual quality, increase contrast, use only grayscale, or use “voice over”, so that an incoming text is read to the recipient. These accessibility applications can be helpful for both children and adults who have learning disabilities, are deaf or hard of hearing, have reduced visual attention, or are visually impaired.  For more information, check out the following websites or talk to your therapist about ways to customize your device.
