Mashable’s profile of Jordyn Castor

Katie Dupere at Mashable profiles Jordyn Castor, a 22-year-old blind Apple engineer who specializes in accessibility:

As her internship came to a close, Castor’s skills as an engineer and advocate for tech accessibility were too commanding to let go. She was hired full-time as an engineer on the accessibility design and quality team — a group of people Castor describes as “passionate” and “dedicated.”

It’s a great story with some fascinating details, including the different use cases for Braille displays and VoiceOver.
