Apple comemora os 30 anos da Lei dos Americanos Portadores de DeficiĂŞncia

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA) and to celebrate the date, Apple shared some stories about people, the technologies created and what else can be done to improve their lives.

The company recalled that, since its foundation, it has been a pioneer in the democratization of powerful technologies through products and services designed for all. From VoiceOver and Talking Screen Content, to Voice Control, Assistive Control and even Siri, all products and services in the Apple ecosystem are designed with accessibility in mind as well.

Dean Hudson, an accessibility evangelist technician at Apple (and who is part of the team that developed VoiceOver), said that “accessible technology must be very clear”.

There really should be no layer between what I can do on my iPhone and what someone who is not disabled can do.
