Apple invested big in accessibility on iOS, with magnification, voiceover support – which lets your device read text and menus aloud to you – and voice commands supported out of the box, improving the lives of disabled folks of all stripes.

The App Store is full of great apps to help blind and partially-sighted people get the most of their iOS devices. Here are 10 of the best.

Their recent iOS puzzler, Stem Stumper was built from the ground up to be accessible to the vision impaired.
