New iPad Accessibility Features


The new iPadOS 15 supports eye-tracking technology, allowing people with disabilities to control a device simply using their eyes and little to no upper body movement. The device may even be covered by medical insurance.


Apple, in collaboration with eye-tracking specialist company Tobii Dynavox, announced the launch of TD Pilot, a device that makes the iPad accessible to the estimated 50 million people globally who need communication assistance.


The Device


The super-powered device has a water and dust-resistant frame that attaches to Apple tablets or wheelchair mounts and incorporates large speakers. A secondary “Partner Window” on the back of the device spells out what the user is saying, making conversation much more natural. Moreover, it features Tobii Dynavox’s latest eye-tracking sensor, which is powerful enough to work in bright sunlight.
