AppleVis was founded in 2010 with the goal of empowering blind and low vision users of Apple products such as the Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Apple TV by providing information on accessibility features, accessible apps, and workarounds, as well as fostering a community of support and sharing of knowledge.
Our community is diverse and inclusive, welcoming users from all around the world, and draws upon a wealth of individual knowledge and experience to help each other in getting the most from Apple hardware and software. With a active and supportive community, and a wealth of collective knowledge and experience, AppleVis is the go-to online resource for anyone looking to fully utilize their Apple products and stay up-to-date with the latest accessibility developments.
What We Offer
AppleVis offers a number of free resources to assist and empower blind and low vision users of Apple products and related applications:
Our iOS, macOS, Apple Watch, and Apple TV app directories provide a list of apps tested for accessibility by members of the AppleVis community.
The AppleVis forum is open to any and all Apple-related discussion.
The AppleVis Podcast features community-submitted app demonstrations, interviews with developers, and a monthly Apple news round-up.
The AppleVis Blog features both editorial content and news of interest to blind and low vision users of Apple products.
The best and most direct way you can contribute to AppleVis is simply by contributing your unique knowledge and expertise on the forum, in our app directories, or by submitting a podcast.
You can also help by raising awareness of the AppleVis website. So, if you have a web site, a blog, or simply a Twitter or Facebook account, please consider posting a link to AppleVis. Of course, the old fashioned way of simply mentioning AppleVis to people is just as valuable, so please do what you can to help spread the word about our community.
AppleVis is managed by a small team of unpaid volunteers and receives no external funding or sponsorship. Accordingly, if you enjoy and benefit from what we do at AppleVis, please consider helping to make this possible by making a single or regular micro donation. All donations are truly appreciated and help to cover the financial costs of maintaining and developing AppleVis for the community.
