Mashable: ‘This blind Apple engineer is transforming the tech world at only 22’

You might’ve read this story by Katie Dupree on Mashable. The part that caught my attention:

Sarah Herrlinger, senior manager for global accessibility policy and initiatives at Apple, says a notable part of the company’s steps toward accessibility is its dedication to making inclusivity features standard, not specialized.

The cynical take here is that this is rehearsed PR-speak designed to sound great and put forth a good impression. I don’t think that’s the case but even if it is, I don’t see other companies presenting their PR-speak with a shared passion.

I think Apple truly understands and cares for the needs of the people they’re crafting for: ‘…making inclusivity features standard, not specialized’.
