Apple is taking a step further enabling ease of use and accessibility
#Apple extends its accessibility support by introducing #Hearing which can be accessed quickly via Control Center in the new #iIOS12. Live Listen support in AirPods is key. The inclusion of this feature makes AirPods more capable and more alluring; it’s significant given they are almost universally hailed as one of Apple’s best products in years.
Here’s how to enable it in Control Center and allows you to easily access it.
- Go to Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls
- Scroll till you see “Hearing” at the More Controls section
- Slide the option up to Include section
- Swipe down on the top right section for Control Center and tap on Hearing
- Tap on “On”
Live Listen is a feature Apple developed and eventually launched in 2014 that allows iPhone users with hearing aids to hear people in noisy environments or from across a room, such as a crowded restaurant or lecture hall. If a compatible hearing aid is paired to a user’s phone, there are options to turn Live Listen on and off, adjust volume and even set it as their preferred Accessibility Shortcut.
