At Sync, we believe that education should be accessible to all. We know that as many as 20% of children at some point in their educational career will have special needs, and as little as 2% of them will have their needs addressed.

Our dedicated education team work with schools nationally, in order to create customised and accessible technology solutions, allowing all students have full access to the curriculum.

All of Apple’s platforms have a comprehensive range of incredibly powerful accessibility tools built right-in to the platform itself.

Apps and Accessories

A huge range of apps and accessories are
available to help you personalise your
experience further, including: switches, braille
displays, and AAC reader apps.

accessibility visual


With a range of built-in tools, and support for external peripherals, such as braille displays, iPad and Mac are built with accessibility in mind. The voiceover and zoom tools are the perfect examples of this:

VoiceOver is a screen descriptive tool, providing auditory descriptions of each onscreen element and provides helpful hints along the way. It also allows you to change the way you use your device.

Zoom on the other hand is a built in screen magnifier that works anywhere in iOS including all apps from the App Store. The maximum zoom level of 500% can easily be set by the student and when zoomed in everything works as normal.

accessibility hearing


All Apple devices can connect to bluetooth hearing aids. Students using ‘Made for iPhone’ hearing aids can not only control the hearing aid from their device, but they can also use it to listen to their device.

Mono Audio allows students who are deaf or hard of hearing in one ear to listen to both channels of a stereo recording at once. Students can balance the volume between left and right ears.

FaceTime is also ideal for student’s who communicate using sign language. Every gesture and facial expression shows in crystal clear detail through the use of retina displays.

Physical and Motor Skills

Where a student has limited mobility access, there are a number of tools that can be configured in order to provide that student interact with an Apple device.

Switch Control for example allows the student to utilise a series of switches (hardware, software, or camera based) to build a new interactive system for your device. Your Apple device will then scan through all the options available, selecting them using this switch.
