Apple highlights “design for everyone”

May 18 is Global Accessibility Awareness Day, and in preparation Apple has recorded a new series of videos to show off some of its lesser-known accessibility features.

The seven videos each focus on an individual with different needs that are addressed by technology. VoiceOver is perhaps the biggest accessibility feature, having been introduced to Apple products way back in 2004. It helps people with visual impairments navigate software. Beyond that, there are a host of apps and features for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch to help people with disabilities in their daily lives.

You can see the full range of videos on YouTube, or watch two of our favorite clips below. It’s eye-opening to see how much of a help a humble iPhone can be.
