FaceTime

FaceTime on Mac

FaceTime is a great way for people who use sign language to communicate easily. It has high-quality video and a fast frame rate, so you can catch every sign, gesture and facial expression. And because Mac, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch all come equipped with FaceTime, you can talk to iOS and macOS users across the street or across the globe.1

New in macOS High Sierra Type to Siri

Siri helps you do more with your desktop.2 And now in macOS High Sierra, there’s a new accessibility option to set Siri to “Type to Siri” mode. Ask questions, set up reminders, issue commands — all through your keyboard.

Closed Captions

Watch movies, videos and podcasts using closed captioning, a feature supported in macOS apps like iTunes and QuickTime. Just look for the small CC icon to buy or rent captioned movies from the iTunes Store, or find captioned podcasts in iTunes U. You can even customise captions with different styles and fonts, including styles that are larger and outlined.

Mono Audio

When you’re using headphones, you may miss some audio if you’re hard of hearing or deaf in one ear. That’s because stereo recordings usually have distinct left- and right-channel audio tracks. macOS can help by playing both audio channels in both ears and letting you adjust the balance for greater volume in either ear, so you won’t miss a single note of a concerto or word of an audiobook.

Screen Flash

Instead of playing an alert sound, your Mac can flash its screen when an app needs your attention. Screen Flash automatically works with every app that uses the system beep. So there’s nothing more for you to do once you set it up.

Messages with iMessage

iMessage lets you start up a conversation without needing to say or hear a word. Send unlimited messages to anyone on an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch or Mac. Or send a group message to keep everyone in the loop. You can also share photos, videos, locations, links or the occasional smiley.3
