TEK TALK AGAIN WELCOMES JONATHAN MOSEN TO DISCUSS HIS NEWEST BOOK: IOS 9
WITHOUT THE I.
on Monday 21 September.
Apple's iOS 9, the operating system that powers its mobile devices, receives
a significant upgrade on September 16.
When you master all of iOS 9’s potential, your iOS device will become an even
more powerful tool. Make the most of what iOS 9 has to offer. Get up and
running quickly and easily with a clearly-written, comprehensive,
well-structured guide to all that’s new in iOS 9 from a blindness
perspective. Jonathan Mosen has written "iOS 9 Without the Eye", another book
in his series on iOS improvements.
He has spent months delving into iOS 9as it has taken shape, writing up the
advertised new features from an accessibility point of view, and uncovering a
whole bunch of other goodies Apple didn’t talk about. The results of all that
work can be in your hands with a low-cost purchase.
Even if you’ve participated in Apple’s new public beta programme, chances are
good that you’ll find some handy hidden tricks by reading “iOS 9 Without the
There are plenty of technology blogs out there that showcase some of the new
features of iOS 9, but much of this coverage doesn’t look at new features
from the perspective of those who use VoiceOver, Apple’s built-in screen
reader that makes the operating system accessible to blind people.
There will be some great podcasts demonstrating iOS 9 from the perspective of
VoiceOver users, and they are informative free resources. But there are
people who want a text-based, searchable, authoritative resource at their
fingertips that they can skim at their leisure, and consult when they need
to. They find that text lets them go at their own pace, skipping over topics
that don’t interest them, concentrating on those items that are important to
them. They want clear explanations and step by step guides to all the new
features from a VoiceOver perspective.
Jonathan Mosen’s “iOS 9 Without the Eye” will get you up to speed in a way
that’s easy to understand, easy to skim, and with clear language that
explains it all. The eBook gives you a handy guide to the new OS as you
install it, and come to grips with all that’s new and all that’s changed. And
it’s available for only $19.95 USD.
