apple_accessibilityIt is no secret that Apple has always made a big deal about making their products as accessible to people from all walks of life. In fact some of you might recall that a couple of years ago, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook was famously quoted as saying, “When we work on making our devices accessible by the blind. I don’t consider the bloody ROI.”

So much so that recently Apple has made some changes to its online store where users will now be able to easily find accessories designed for those who might be disabled or handicapped in some way. The company has launched a brand new section on its online store that caters specifically to those who might need such accessories.

These accessories are aimed to help those who might have visual impairment, to those who might have trouble with their physical and motor skills, to those who might have learning disabilities. For example they are selling accessories like the AbleNet Specs Switch that allows users to press a button to operate iOS or Mac products.

Then there are also braille displays to help those with visual impairments, and so on. That being said, not all these accessories come cheap, but if you ever needed something that you know would be compatible with your Apple products, you now know where to find them.
