Apple will soon be receiving another award for the accessibility features in its products.
The American Council of the Blind (ACB) has today announced that Apple will be receiving the Robert S. Bray Award for the company's continued innovations in accessibility.
"The American Council of the Blind applauds Apple for its innovative approach to product accessibility, giving people who are blind equal access to mainstream technology," said Kim Charlson, ACB president.
The Bray Award is given to a company or person who has improved communication technology or devices; or expanded access to such devices for all blind people. Apple is being recognized for the intuitive, built-in accessibility features across its various product lines--features which allow blind and low vision users to enjoy the same access as people without visual impairments.
"We put great effort into making our products accessible because we believe technology should serve everyone," said Sarah Herrlinger, Senior Manager for Global Accessibility Policy and Initiatives at Apple. "We build accessibility into the core of our operating systems and continually innovate new ideas and features to create a great experience for all users."
Apple will be presented with the Bray Award on July 4, 2016 in Minneapolis, MN, during the ACB's annual conference.
