My mother is now visually impaired and I've got an old iPad which I want to turn into a "audiobook station" for her. However, with the vision problems, operating the Music App turns out to be impossible (also, she's 80+y/o and really not into tech). Also, accessibility options on the tablet were not enough.

I can take care of keeping the iPad online and feed with new books, but I wish she had at least the ability to play/pause the book at any given moment. For that, would be ideal if the screen were a big simple Play/Pause button she'd simply hit once.

Kind of like Big Button Music Player but hopefully even simpler.

This list of apps is for the people with low vision or the blind. There was blind guy I met that was using an app that used sound and voice when he moved his fingers across the iPad.
