Shelly Brisbin has updated and expanded iOS Access for All, bringing it to the third edition, and addressing changes and updates in iOS 9. She discusses some of the changes and improvements in this version of iOS, and how the book has been re-structured to make finding specific information easier. Shelly also discusses some of her favorite apps that rank high in accessibility, why some features are often viewed as â€œsecretâ€ by the main stream audience, and why we can all benefit from those features regardless of whether we define ourselves as â€œpart timeâ€ or â€œfull timeâ€ accessibility users.
