iOS 7.1 Brings New Voices, Visual Tweaks for Low-vision, More

iOS 7.1 has been released, providing several tweaks and bug fixes for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Among the list of improvements are new voices for several countries including British and Australian English. Users can now subscribe to iTunes Match directly from the device; formerly you needed to do this from a computer. This enables you to listen to iTunes Radio without ads. If dictating long messages with Siri, keep your finger on the home button until you are done speaking with a new tweak. Visually speaking, the new bold font now has been expanded to more areas including the keyboard and calculator. More of the visual flare can also now be turned off, If you're still using an old iPhone 4, some optomizations have been made for your device to run faster, though we'll see how this is in practice. IN addition, the new fingerprint censor is now a bit more forgiving and should recognize you more easily. Also, random phone resets which have been reported by some users have been fixed in this update. This post from AppleVis outlines some more VoiceOver bugs that were fixed in this release as well as issues that are still outstanding.
