Today, Apple is honoring Global Accessibility Awareness Day by promoting its accessibility features on their website. They said that “Technology is more powerful when it empowers everyone.”
Apple updated the homepage of its website by featuring accessibility on iOS devices, Apple Watch, and Macs. This change encourages website visitors to check out their accessibility page, which showcases many features from VoiceOver to Zoom. The page is updated, but the videos still remain the same as in late 2016. There’s still the 2016 commercial of Apple users with disabilities using these features as well.
Apple has been celebrating Global Accessibility Awareness Day for a couple of years, from their “Designed For” videos of 3 videos consisting of CEO Tim Cook interviewing 3 accessibility activists. They also hosted events regarding inclusion in design at their Cupertino, London, Austin, and Cork headquarters. Apple does its “Today at Apple” sessions about accessibility in select Apple Retail Stores as well.
In conclusion, Apple is making accessibility more possible for many iOS users and Mac users with disabilities to use their Apple Products. They’re now sharing more stories about these capable users being able to do many things on their iPhones to their Macs. Apple has been making it possible for users to develop apps, read on their iPhones, create videos and presentations easier than ever.
