Moving from a conventional telephone keypad to a cellular telephone with a touch-screen can seem quite challenging for some people. When one is visually impaired, there is always the option of using VoiceOver, the iPhone's built-in access technology that is designed to allow individuals with visual impairments the ability to access the visual information on the device's screen (see, for example, Apple, n.d.). This accessibility feature also allows items on the screen to be spoken aloud when touched. With the use of additional finger gestures (taps and flicks or swipes of one or multiple fingers on the screen), VoiceOver is designed to provide users with visual impairments the same amount of information as is accessible to sighted users using the device.
