David Pogue’s VoiceOver Video

David Pogue’s VoiceOver Video

Yahoo’s David Pogue interviews Joseph Danowsky about his use of the iPhone with VoiceOver. Joe’s vision is seriously impaired by cone-rod dystrophy. He holds a law degree from Harvard and today navigates his successful career in finance with a little help from his smartphone.

Joe has risen mightily to the challenges of vision loss. With his iPhone he is able to get information, throughout his day, that would not otherwise be easily accessible to him.

Please note, as Joe points out, Voice Over is not Siri. VoiceOver is a screen reader, it is speech out. You do not speak to VoiceOver, you just listen.

Siri works well with VoiceOver, ensuring each spoken request receives a spoken response. Together they’re an amazing team!

Watch the video on Yahoo.
