Hello All,

Happy reading.



So, unless you've been living under a rock for the past week, you know that
Apple released iOS 8 today. Thanks to Twitter, I've come across the
following links which may prove helpful to you and/or your students,
friends, etc. The first three are specific to blind and low vision users and
the fourth is one written for the general populous. With regard to Braille:
It seems that there are some significant improvements to the interactions of
iDevices and refreshable Braille displays. Regrettably, these may be
tempered by slower Braille input-which is indeed something we can only hope
Apple will fix in a subsequent release.


Happy updating!
