  any way you choose. Select fonts and style cell borders.
  Add, resize, and apply styles to tables. Move everything
  around your canvas at will.

Accessibility https://www.apple.com/accessibility/ Apple - Accessibility - Sady https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XB4cjbYywqg We believe that technology should be accessible to everyone - including Sady Paulson, who uses Switch Control on a Mac to share her thoughts on doing what you love. How Apple Saved My Life https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6c_QjJjEks This film is not sponsored or a paid product placement. This is merely my thanks to Apple. Growing up blind, the resources I had to help cope with my visual impairment were quite limited. It wasn't until I learned of Apple's efforts to make their products as accessibility friendly as possible, that I truly was able to perform stronger in school, online, on the streets, and with my art. This is the story of how Apple saved my life at a time when my mental illness was the worse it had ever been. --James Rath https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIl2EzNYri0cLtSlZowttih25VnSvWITu Taking a family portrait. Catching up over FaceTime. Raising the blinds to let in the morning light. We want everyone to enjoy the everyday moments that technology helps make possible, so we work to make every Apple product accessible from the very start. Because the true value of a device isn't measured by how powerful it is, but by how much it empowers you.
