New Switch Control with Platform Switching
Switch Control is a powerful accessibility technology for people with extensive physical motor limitations. It allows you to navigate sequentially through onscreen items so you can select, tap, drag, type, and more using Bluetooth-enabled switch hardware. And now with Platform Switching, you can control your Apple TV directly from your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, without having to set up your switches on each new device.1
As an alternative to using gestures or Switch Control, you can use a Bluetooth keyboard to navigate Apple TV and enter text.2
Siri and Dictation
The Siri Remote allows you to use your voice to bypass onscreen navigation. Ask Siri to perform a wide range of tasks, such as “Find Andy Samberg movies,” “Rewind exactly five minutes,” “Open Netflix,” and more.3 You can also use Dictation to enter text in search fields and sign in to apps with your voice by spelling out your user name and password.
Touch Surface Sensitivity
Customize the Touch surface on the Siri Remote to match your preferred control style. Set Tracking to Fast to make your smaller thumb movements go farther on the screen. Or set Tracking to Slow, so your larger movements will move a smaller distance.
