I have set up most of the accessibility features because they are necessary for me as a blind person. I've made a few adjustments, because I think they work better.
I have VoiceOver activated on my iPhone. I've made some adjustments within VoiceOver: the speaking speed is very high (95), and unnecessary information is turned off. I have limited the extra information that is not needed to use the content.
In addition, I use a Braille display that I linked through VoiceOver so that I can use apps with speech and braille. Everything on screen and spoken is also pushed to the Braille display. So I can feel with my fingers what is being said.
Within VoiceOver I also have Screen Curtain activated. This puts my screen on black, so people can't watch along. It also saves the battery. To make the screen even darker by default, I have Dark Mode always on.
Furthermore, the font size is as small as possible. Since I can't see it, it doesn't matter, but it’s handy for VoiveOver to have a lot of text on the screen at once.
Finally, the automatic rotation of my phone is turned off.
How many hours a day I use my phone? How many hours do you use your eyes?
