The blind might not be the original target market for the folks over at Apple with the hugely successful iPad tablet in the first place, but this does not mean that with a little bit of training, some perseverance, as well as the right kind of software in place, the blind as well as visually impaired folks too, are able to take advantage of this popular tablet device.
As you can check out in the video above from Bloomberg, Jon Erlichman from the same company participated in a workshop that actually helps instruct teachers on how one is able to unlock the power of the iPad for the visually impaired. This is definitely a heart warming video, as we see barriers being broken down thanks to the wonders of modern technology. I wonder whether similar training concepts and ideas can be incorporated so that those who want to use tablets on the Android platform will not feel left out of the equation.
