Hi guys. I know there's been a lot of discussion of face id and what the implications are for blind and low vision users. This post will probably make some people mad. You may even decide to call me an apple hater. Say what you will.
In my opinion, apple should have taken a hint from samsung and in addition to face id included the finger print sensor on the back of the phone. I personally can't use face id on my galaxy s8 for 2 reasons. 1, and this is pretty obvious. I can't see my screen. And 2, it's not exactly talkback friendly. However, in addition to being able to create a passcode, i can still use the finger print sensor to unlock my phone. Passwords are not all that secure. I just feel that if someone can't use face id for whatever reason, there should still be a finger print sensor, because a finger print seems mor secure than a password but apple is going downhill in my opinion. It's not just the removal of touch id on the iPhone x that bothers me, but i won't go in to that. What are your thoughts?. .
