Apple is putting features of accessibility in the center and front

The accessibility news of Apple has been published on WWDC. They are going to uncover about the accessibility of other items as well. There are also some thoughts about the other announcements which are going to take place very soon.

Unfolding the Accessibility

Apple has already moved the accessibility option to the top level of the settings menu. Without drilling them down the path is Settings>General>Accessibility. This setting is on the top domain with the same list with Notifications, Screen time, and others. This is also applicable for watchOS 6 as well.

The accessibility is also an option for “Setup Buddy” experience. When someone is going to use an iPhone then the settings will prompt them about this feature as a voice over.

The changes are almost similar and important as well. It will not make any changes for the regular user of that device. By moving this menu on a top position, it will give the disabled users a bit more advantage.

It is not an insignificant move for disabled users. The changes take Apple to a whole different level. Adding accessibility to operating software is a very critical aspect.

People enjoy the HomePod so that they can listen to podcasts, music and can easily control the Homekit device. So now, the most important part is that the problems can make the inability to pick up where the user left. If someone is doing work like listening to music then they have to stop and change the output to make it an office use. It is not at all a difficult task, it only requires few taps.

When the friction of iOS 13 goes away, all that is important is placing the iPhone XR to the HomePod. Then the iPhone will hand off to what it was playing. The changing of the source is not a big deal. The best experience is to hear all the iMessages and read them loud on the Airpods. So in this way, this technology looks more classy.

Voice Control Elements

The voice control is a good feature.

The developers of Apple Inc. have the same sentiments. Accessibility can be a good topic of conversation. Apple accessibility group shared about the development of voice control. It is on a Beta version right now. It was a very hard way for the team to develop this feature right here.

The features feel like magic and they are so real that the user will be very happy to use it. The best thing is that it can be a game-changing feature for this industry. It enhances so many experiences that it will soon open various ways to new technology. While describing these things Federighi was on the verge of crying.

Microsoft finally brings its To-Do application to the Mac operating system

In the year 2017, Microsoft said that it will be shutting down Wunderlist which was a company acquired by Microsoft in order to forge their to-do application.

After acquiring the company, Microsoft released its to-do app. It has launched the To-Do as the application is called on Windows, Android, and iOS and expanded its feature set. This application will now be available in Mac operating system too.

This morning, Microsoft announced that their To-Do application will now be available in the Mac operating system. All the core features of the application will be working with the application. Some of the handiest features of this application are utilized tags, share list, work offline and manage tasks. The Mac operating system will take advantage of the new platform which offers a handful of shortcuts.

There was a Worldwide Developer Conference this month where the company ended up announcing all their tools and they started calling it Project Catalyst. Under this project, Apple is trying to bring all the applications to release their products for the Mac operating system. The Project Catalyst helps developers build a new application with the help of the existing codebase which will is being used in iOS applications.

Microsoft was not ready to be a part of the Project Catalyst and this is why they went in a very different route. The company wants to ship totally brand new applications for the Mac operating system.

“We’re not currently working on new features for Wunderlist as we’re concentrating on our new app, Microsoft To-Do,” a spokesperson said. “Once we are confident that we have incorporated the best of Wunderlist into Microsoft To-Do, we will retire Wunderlist,” they added.

This is a big step for Microsoft to release a completely new software just for the Mac operating system.

Google accused of copying lyrics of different songs from Genius for their search results

In a recent report from the Wall Street Journal, there have been accusations made on Google by Genius Media by saying that Google copies song lyrics from their website to use them in their search results.

If you have ever looked for Google Search, then you have seen that there is a box appearing alongside the general search results. It basically shows the lyrics of the song. Some lyrics websites have taken issues with this because this means that they will receive less traffic from users.

Genius Media is accusing Google of copying all the lyrics directly from their website and using them in Google search results.

Genius made a change to its site back in 2016 where it started:

 “Alternating the lyrics’ apostrophes between straight and curly single-quote marks in exactly the same sequence for every song.”

This effectively acts as a watermark for the copy, and when the apostrophes are translated into Morse code, it spells out “Red Handed.”

Google has been notified by Genius multiple times in the last two years about the stolen lyrics. The company had already explained that all the lyrics were directly licensed from partners. Google also came out with an official statement that they will be looking over and investigating the whole matter. Google is not really at fault right now because past complains from Genius might have triggered an investigation far more sooner but nothing like this has happened yet.

Amazon Spark, the two-year-old Instagram competitor has finally shut down

The two-year-old Amazon Spark, the competitor of Instagram has finally closed its business. With the growing popularity of social media, Amazon has capitalized on the shopping trends and released Amazon Spark so that it can compete with Instagram. The experiment which is popularly known as Amazon Spark has finally come to an end.

The service which has been provided by Amazon Spark is very bland in nature. On Instagram, people can follow their friends, interests, and brands which makes it very engaging. Amazon Spark is much more focused on sale and shopping. The company had tried to mock Instagram previously with different fashion inspirations, but Instagram can win over them because the reach of Instagram is much more widespread.

Amazon, till now, has not commented anything about this and when they were asked about the company shutting down, they did not reveal anything. Amazon has decided that they need to comment on the apparent shutdown of the Spark but all the services which were present on the website are all gone now.

The URL of the site amazon.com/spark now redirects to the new site, #FoudItOnAmazon. The site is like a product discovery tool

There has been a lot of use for the interesting find tab since the year 2016 for people who are looking to make everything easy. This was the perfect way for the platform to let people browse all the different looks in a convenient manner.

The site Interesting Finds has a very clean look and it makes looking for products on the website very convenient. People who know about this option often use it and they are the one who has mentioned about the service being discontinued.

According to all the latest reports, from the company, it is evident that Spark is the one which is shutting down and Interesting Finds will still be available so that it feels convenient for the people.
