As first reported by Blind Bargains, a member of Apple's Accessibility Team will be presenting a session at this year's American Council of the Blind (ACB) Conference and Convention.

The session, entitled "Accessibility and Apple," will take place on July 7, 2015, from 4:15 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. According to a statement provided to AppleVis, the session will focus on how the accessibility features in Apple's products (including the Apple Watch) can assist in and transform one's life:

For more than 25 years, Apple has provided new and innovative solutions for persons with disabilities, allowing them to access and enjoy using the Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and other Apple technology. Apple includes groundbreaking assistive technology in its products, as standard features, at no additional cost. This session will explore the many ways Apple has implemented accessibility features into products, such as the Apple Watch, to help transform and assist in one's daily life.

The ACB's 54th Annual National Conference & Convention will take place from July 3 - 11, 2015 in Dallas, TX.

Unfortunately, we are not aware of a live stream or recording of the presentation. In any event, the only way we would be able to post a recording here was if it were officially authorized by Apple, due to concerns about possible confidentiality/copyright issues.
