Do Not Dis­turb has a new set­ting to pre­vent no­ti­fi­ca­tions com­ing through if your Mac’s dis­play has gone to sleep (on pur­pose or after a pe­riod of in­ac­tiv­ity), which is great if you sleep in the same room as your Mac­Book. Speak­ing of ac­ces­si­bil­ity, Ap­ple has added a cool new fea­ture to make OS X even bet­ter for the blind. Turn on the new video de­scrip­tions fea­ture, and Yosemite’s VoiceOver will add a spo­ken voice to the video con­tent on the screen, pro­vid­ing an even richer ex­pe­ri­ence for the vis­ually im­paired. If you like to or­gan­ise your apps in Launch­pad, Ap­ple has fi­nally lifted the limit on how many can fit inside fold­ers. They work in a sim­i­lar way to those in iOS; once there are too many to dis­play on one page, a se­ries of white dots at the bot­tom of a folder in­di­cates the num­ber of pages’ worth of icons it con­tains. Swipe hor­i­zon­tally or click the dots to move be­tween pages. (Re­mem­ber, if you’re in a hurry, you can type part of an app’s name as soon as Launch­pad opens to search for it, just as you could in Mav­er­icks.)
