    So we all know that there are many different options for those with visual or aural impairments, such as text-to-speech, large fonts or inverted colours, as detailed on the official page at the following link - https://www.apple.com/uk/accessibility/ios/

    Personally, I would like to see more themes added that could cater for those with a visual impairment, including high-contrast themes.

    Do you think there are any options that are missing and should be included in future versions of iOS?

    The option to tap on a setting on your screen that alerts an elderly person's caretaker. Just a thought since the elderly are starting to use advanced mobile devices.

    This would be a great feature of health book if it does come to iOS.

    Individual toggles for the different animations. As it is, it's all or none.

    Option to config a battery saver mode when you get the 10% warning

    Like turning off data

    Minimizing screen brightness

    Turning off location services

    It would be an auto setting that applies itself till you charge back over the 10 percent Mark

    On my Mac I use sticky keys to hold down modifiers as I have one hand and its quite small so I can't always stretch. On iOS this only really applies to the shift key but it works fine fo me using the on-screen keyboard - I just tap shift, then the letter I want in uppercase or double tap for a run of uppercase letters. The problem is with using external bluetooth keyboards where the options are more like a Mac keyboard, i.e. I have not only shift keys, but a command and option key too and a fn key that is required for accessing the top row options, useful things like volume controls, toggling on-screen keyboard (the only way to use Emoji) whilst the command key gives me back functions that on-screen keyboards don't - cut, copy, paste etc. But without the equaivalent of the Mac's Sticky keys options it means that I can only use these functions where the modier and the letter or number key are within reach of each other - and not all of them are.

    I agree. As someone who has a visual impairment the feature which has not moved forward on IOS or OSX is the invert colour feature. My main gripe is around that once turned on the theme extends to photos and videos. Great that I can read but if I want to watch a film or access a website I have to view these items in negative format. It would be great to have a theme that gave the colour features I could adjust for myself but leave photos and videos in their natural format.

    Kind Regards

    All I want is a way to override the CSS on all websites I visit. I want all the light grey font colors to be changed to white, and all the dark grey font colors to be changed to black. Possible offer an additional option to then make the font's background the opposite (black or white).

    "Inverting colors" on photos and videos doesn't make sense. I need inversion and contrast to read TEXT. Only TEXT. Not photos, not videos, only TEXT. The part I'm trying to READ as opposed to VIEW. Why is this so difficult to understand?

    I can't believe I'm the only person who needs such. The current "vision accessibility options" focus on Apple's own iPad screens rather than the actual websites we bought the iPad to access. i don't believe there's absolutely no way Apple can override CSS to do this.

    I understand what you are saying and I'm sure that CSS could be overridden to do this. My guess is that it is a feature that would be used little (after all how many people know how to override the background and font colors in Firefox or Chrome on a PC browser) and thus isn't very high on Apple's priority list.
    I actually searched thru some of the alternate browsers available on the AppStore and couldn't find any that allowed you to do this.
