Accessibility With Apple – Brave In The Attempt

… Apple continues to lead the way. In fact, every photo and video on their site is made accessible with captions for the hearing impaired (in multiple languages) and audio descriptions for those with visual impairments. Even basic features you like are accessible in ways you may not have considered. Consider the Apple Watch with taptic feedback for the visually impaired or fitness information that is adjustable for wheelchair use.

One of Apple’s resident accessibility experts, Dave Marra (@marrathon), was recently able to train the tech liaisons in my district on all that Apple offers for special needs students. The following is by no means a comprehensive list, but it can give you an idea of the tools you can use to make learning available to all. Most of these can be accessed under the accessibility settings (in system preferences on a Mac or in General Settings in iOS). It’s really amazing how these tools allow a blind man to take photographs, a struggling student to read, or Sady Paulson, a teacher/editor with cerebral palsy, to create a commercial.
