iOS 17 Voice Control – A Leap Forward

Date & Time
Friday, March 22, 2024 - 10:20 AM PDT  
Elite 1-3  

Appleā€™s Voice Control feature in Accessibility settings in iOS 17 is a true leap forward in speech recognition capability for all persons seeking to use an iPhone completely hands-free and especially for persons with motor challenges. Through its natural language commands Voice Control offers multiple ways to control an iDevice. Persons with vision impairment can also issue VoiceOver and Zoom commands by voice. Offering features formerly only available in Dragon NaturallySpeaking on a modern computer, Voice Control (available in six languages) now affords the user features like granular control over the text cursor and the ability to click on any object on the screen either by name, number or through a grid selection technique. Voice Control also provides the ability to create custom voice commands and to import vocabulary lists.

Through live demonstration, this presentation will demonstrate all the core features of Voice Control for various consumer scenarios with an emphasis on persons with motor challenges. We will illustrate use of Voice Control for performing a variety of tasks including text dictation, navigation, editing, formatting and control of the iPhone in a variety of applications including macro creation. Resource documents summarizing all processes demonstrated will be provided in addition to a PowerPoint presentation.
