Watch movies, TV shows, videos, and podcasts using closed captioning, a feature supported in macOS apps like the music app and QuickTime. Just look for the small CC icon to buy or rent captioned movies from the iTunes Store or find captioned podcasts in iTunes U. You can even customize captions with different styles and fonts, including styles that are larger and outlined.

Mono AudioFind the right balance for you.

When you’re using headphones, you may miss some audio if you’re hard of hearing or deaf in one ear. That’s because stereo recordings usually have distinct left- and right-channel audio tracks. macOS can help by playing both audio channels in both ears, and letting you adjust the balance for greater volume in either ear, so you won’t miss a single note of a concerto or word of an audiobook.

Screen FlashYou don’t need beeps to know what’s up.

Instead of playing an alert sound, your Mac can flash its screen when an app needs your attention. Screen Flash automatically works with every app that uses the system beep. So there’s nothing more for you to do once you set it up.

iMessageChat through type, photos, smileys, and more.

iMessage lets you start up a conversation without needing to say or hear a word. Send unlimited messages to anyone on an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch, or Mac. Or send a group message to keep everyone in the loop. You can also share photos, videos, locations, links, or the occasional smiley.3
