Our friends Luis Perez and Christopher Hills have released an iBook about switch control. Â Switch Control is a powerful accessibility feature that is built into iOS and OS X to allow users who are unable to use a touchscreen handsfree access beyond simple taps. With Switch Control, users with motor difficulties can perform most multi-touch gestures, control many of the media playback features of their devices and more. This books is an international collaboration between Christopher Hills, an Accessibility Consultant and expert Switch Control user from Australia, and Luis Perez, an inclusive learning consultant based in the U.S. With step by step directions supported by closed captioned videos that explore each Switch Control feature in detail, these two fellows will have you well on your way to becoming a true Switch Master. The book covers the latest Switch Control features introduced in iOS 9. New content will be added and continuously kept up to date with the latest releases of iOS.
