Ever since rumors started swirling that Apple was working on a wearable device, I’ve often thought about what such a device would mean for people with disabilities. My curiosity is so high, in fact, that I’ve even written about the possibilities. Make no mistake, for users with disabilities such as myself, a wearable like the Apple Watch brings with it usage and design paradigms that, I think, are of even greater impact than what the iPhone in one’s pocket has to offer.
Suffice it to say, I’m very excited for Apple Watch’s debut sometime next year.
Accessibility is definitely a strong point for Apple – at least compared to the competition – and I don’t think the Apple Watch will be any different.
