I wasn't sure which forum to post in; hope this one's alright.
I'm a radio producer working on a story for WNYC's New Tech City about if, how, and why Apple has done a superlative job building accessibility into iOS. I've been interviewing several teachers and students at the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Austin, TX. They love their iOS products there and having nothing but the highest praise.
I wonder if this is true universally—elsewhere in America, elsewhere in the world? I'd love to speak with anyone willing to discuss the subject. I'd also love to find the founder or some long-term moderators of this website, as I think you may have a valuable perspective to add to my story. I'll also be reaching out to Apple to try and learn how and why they gave such emphasis to accessibility issues when first designing the iPhone. Any insight on this topic would be much appreciated as well.
Thanks very much for your time,
