Debbie wants to know if there's a tablet that allows for voice commands. Leo says just about any tablet can do that. Can she text with a tablet? Leo says that both the iPad and the iPhone have the same capability to text via voice with Siri. All she would need to do is press down the home button until Siri starts. Google can do some of that, but it's tricky.
All Debbie really needs to do is get her contacts into the iPad and from there, it's relatively straight forward. She can use voice dictation to input numbers, etc. Both Android and Apple have excellent accessibility features as well, including screen readers. Blind users love the iPhone. So the iPad is probably the best for Debbie's application.
