Looking at Accessibility in iOS 8

At the XOXO festival this past weekend in Portland, Oregon, I had the pleasure to finally meet Steven Aquino and tell him how important it is that he keeps us all (in the media and, presumably, within Apple) paying attention to the importance of accessibility.

Steven has been writing about Apple and accessibility for a while now, for Macworld and TidBITS and elsewhere, and today he takes a look at accessibility in iOS 8 on MacStories.

Sentimental and trite though these words may be, as a disabled user who uses Accessibility every day on my devices, I truly believe in the difference Apple makes.

iOS 8 is more proof that, for people with disabilities, Apple’s OS is head and shoulders above the competition.

Count me among those who agree with Marco that Apple should give apps a special label if they qualify as accessible, as a way to prompt more developers to care about the accessibility of their products.
