Join Kevin Favro for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring Guided Access, part of iOS App Development: Accessibility.
- [Instructor] Up until now, we've been working…with the UI Accessibility API to make our app…more accessible for voiceover and switch control users.…Our app has come a long way.…Now let's switch gears and talk about another…assistive technology that will allow us to support…a different group of users.…Guided access is a feature in IOS that helps people…with autism or other attention and sensory challenges…stay focused on one app at a time.…Guided access is typically configured by…a parent, teacher or therapist,…and they can limit an iPhone to stay on one app…by disabling the Home button,…or limit the amount of time spent in an app.…
Keyboard access can be restricted as well as touch input…on certain areas of the screen,…so taps and gestures won't distract from learning.…In this video, we'll look at how to enable guided access,…and how to begin a guided access session.…Then we'll look at the different restrictions…that a parent, teacher or therapist can configure.…The first thing we need to do is turn guided access on.…
