Apple Accessibility: What Does It Mean?

Monday, July 26th, 2010

In this Tech Doctor podcast, Robert Carter shares a presentation that he made to the Blind Information Technology Specialist (BITS) organization during the

American Council of the Blind’s

national convention in Phoenix, Arizona.


Robert explores the accessibility of products made by Apple. He expresses appreciation to some of the pioneers who developed hardware and software to make the Apple II computer accessible in the 1980’s.


Robert then demonstrates and describes how Apple has made its current product line accessible to people who are visually impaired. He explores the accessibility of the Apple Macintosh,  the iPod, iPhone and the iPad.


The podcast includes a humorous song, some samples of speech synthesizers and a brief audio clip where Steve Jobs talks about Apple’s commitment to universal access.
