Friday, 28 May 2010 09:35am

Crowds of people outside the Sydney Apple store brought the surrounding areas to a standstill this morning as the eagerly awaited and highly accessible Apple iPad went on sale today.

Like the iPhone, the iPad contains a number of accessibility features for people with disabilities who want to do things like use the web, send e-mail, listen to music and read e-books.

Accessibility features include the VoiceOver screen reader, zoom, adjustable colour contrast, captioned video and the ability to output the audio to one ear.

To help you learn more about the access features, Media Access Australia has put together a comprehensive guide to access features of the iPad in the Digital technology section of this website.  

The iPad is available in stores now and the entry-level model retails for $629.
