Older people may struggle to read and type messages in small text, especially if they have restricted vision. You can change the size of text on emails, messages and websites on tablets by adjusting the settings, as you would on a smartphone. iPad devices allow you to supersize text – if it’s still not comfortable for an older person to read after resizing it, they can use the Accessibility settings to toggle the text size to a size which suits them. Plus, people with limited eyesight can use Siri voice commands with iPad to dictate messages and emails, start video calls, and browse the internet.
If an older person needs a keyboard, iPad 10.2 works with the Apple Smart Keyboard, which you just slot into the side (Apple Smart Keyboard will need to be bought separately). You can also buy a keyboard which slots into the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab A is compatible with Bluetooth keyboards.
