Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Apr 7, 2017

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

The iMessage app in Apple's latest operating system allows users to add more personal touches to their texts. One of my favorite features is the ability to quickly add a sticker to any text message! There are multiple sticker themes available for download on the App Store, but Sorenson BuzzStickers is one worth noting.

The BuzzStickers app features 15 animated ASL stickers. Users can use them in addition to text, or simply send them alone as pictures! Different examples of stickers include "jaw drop" and "I love you."

To get started using these fun animated stickers:

- Download the Sorenson BuzzStickers app from the App Store.
- Once it's installed, open your iMessage app, and create a new message,
- Click the arrow icon to the left of the text field and select BuzzStickers.
- Choose the desired sticker and send away!

Oh, and did I mention the app is entirely free!? Check it out on iTunes right now!
