I think most people are now aware of the great built in accessbility features of Zoom, VoiceOver, and Black on White Text, Speak Auto-text which came with the first iPad operating system version.
However iOS5 also added the following great accessibility tools that our students are utilising:
- Speak Selection - adds a speak option to any text you select
- Assistive touch - an overlay menu is displayed that presents the user with commands that usually require certain physical actions, such as rotating the screen or shaking the device. See more information at Inside Apple's iOS 5: Assistive Touch allows accessible gesture commands from Apple Insider.
