Apple’s Commitment to Accessibility
For more than 20 years, Apple has provided new and innovative solutions for people with disabilities, allowing them to access — and enjoy using — advanced technology products such as the Mac, iPod, iPhone, and Apple TV.
In fact, Apple has built many accessibility solutions directly into its products as standard features. VoiceOver, screen reading technology that’s part of Mac OS X, provides voice description and offers plug-and-play support for Braille displays. For those who find it difficult to use a mouse, Spotlight search technology makes it easy to launch applications and find files, images, calendar events, or Wikipedia entries using a keyboard. And iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, and other products support closed captioning.
