Apple receives Helen Keller Achievement Award for VoiceOver

Congratulations to Apple for receiving the Helen Keller Achievement Award for VoiceOver. The accessibility feature reads what's happening on a device's display out loud, enabling vision-impaired to use Apple's devices more easily and successfully. 

The American Federation for the Blind's vice president, Paul Schroeder, noted the achievement in a tweet published earlier this week:

"VoiceOver came out...and the world changed." --VP Paul Schroeder on #Apple and #accessibility #HKAA

Our take on the news...

VoiceOver is an achievement that benefits many Apple customers. When I read this story, I thought about the Apple Watch in general. With its myriad of input sensors, not to mention Taptic engine and Force Touch, I can't wait to see what accessibility-minded app developers devise for it.
