The holiday season is upon us, and so are stories that warm your heart. Courtesy of Apple; people with disabilities are able to do tasks that the rest of us take for granted. The New York Times has compiled videos and various stories about how the disabled are being helped by the iPad. Individuals with disabilities can now handle tasks such as: turning the pages of a book or choosing a video to watch.
Therapists are able to integrate the iPad into sessions with their patients, and even legislators see its intrinsic value. Representative Edward J Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat said:
“Apple is an outlier when it comes to devices that are accessible out of the box.”
Can you think of more uses for the iPad that have been overlooked? Please leave a comment.
