Earlier this week, Apple showed its support for the bill to ban LGBT discrimination. Following this act of goodwill, the company has dedicated a page on the App Store wherein apps specific for their Accessibility feature are showcased.
This move from Apple works in line with the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Apple has stepped up and provided the Accessibility Feature page and further dividing these into several sections depending on the disability. Some of the apps included on the page are Dexter, Dragon Dictation, LetterReflex, OneVoice, TapTapSee, and many more.
We’re proud to have an App Store full of tools that improve lives. Using the Accessibility features on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, these apps help with everything from routine tasks to communication and language skills.
Just this summer, Apple was an honored by the American Foundation for the Blind with an award for their VoiceOver technology. This follows after the National Federation of the Blind’s praise for the company last year for doing more for accessibility than “any other company to date.”
This just proves that Apple is working towards equality among individuals no matter who they are. Great job Apple!
