Apple adds accessibility features


According to a report by Globaldata, 5G adoption is expected to boost Singapore’s mobile service revenue to over $2 billion by 2028. Last year, 5G accounted for about 40% of total mobile subscriptions; this number is set to increase to nearly 90% over the course of the next five years. 5G OVERTAKES MOBILE SUBSCRIPTIONS Situated on San Diego State University’s campus, KPBS is the city’s NPR and PBS member radio station. Systems integrator BeckTV and Lawo modernised the station’s five control rooms to the AES67 standard, ensuring maximum flexibility with an all-digital, audio-over-IP (AoIP) operation. Lawo provided Diamond radio mixing consoles, which are interconnected with AoIP players, recorders and other devices such as intercom systems. RADIO KPBS GETS AN UPGRADE

Apple has announced a slew of accessibility features, including eye tracking, vocal shortcuts, music haptics and motion cues, which are likely to debut later this year. These new capabilities represent Apple’s commitment to both accessibility and AI elements. Using AI and a front-facing camera, eye tracking will allow people with disabilities to navigate their devices more easily. Vocal shortcuts will let users create words or sounds that Siri can interpret, helping

those with speech conditions. All user data will be stored on the individual device and not shared with Apple. Music haptics will give deaf individuals a new way to ‘listen’ to Apple Music, using taps, vibrations and other rhythmic elements on supported tracks. Developers can use this feature on their own apps, so it’s not exclusive to Apple Music users. Apple’s vehicle motion cues – animated dots that move as you do – can reduce motion sickness from sensory conflict.
