Elite 1-3  
Learn about how latest advancements in hardware, software and machine learning across Appleā€™s operating systems are powering new accessibility features, and how to integrate these innovative features into daily life, with the goal of making the world a more equitable, accessible place for everyone. With the latest built-in Accessibility features, people who are blind or low vision can use their iPhone and iPad to navigate the last few feet to their destination with Door Detection; users with physical and motor disabilities who may rely on assistive features like Voice Control and Switch Control can fully control Apple Watch from their iPhone with Apple Watch Mirroring; and the Deaf and hard of hearing community can follow Live Captions (beta) on iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Apple is also expanding support for its industry-leading screen reader VoiceOver with over 20 new languages and locales.
