While it's the headline iOS features that tend to get people talking, there are tons of powerful and innovative options hidden away in your iPhone's settings menu, particularly when it comes to accessibility. One visually impaired Twitter user has shared a video of one such accessibility feature – and it seems many had never even heard of it. 

Viewed over 6.5M times in two days, Kirsty Viers' video (below) shows the iPhone's Braille Keyboard in action. With the device facing away from her, Viers is able to compose a tweet with lightning speed by tapping dots on the screen which correspond to the Braille alphabet. The iPhone is already one of our best camera phones, but this video demonstrates why it's a fantastic choice for accessibility.
