Apple has announced that its Everyone Can Code course materials are now accessible to students who are blind and deaf. Everyone Can Code teaches coding in Swift, a programing language. The simple, fun coding lessons can be modified to suit students from kindergarten to college. It’s also fun to use, because it lets you see what you’re creating with code as you write it - as the user types on the left, he or she immediately see the result on the right.
Apple CEO Tim Cook says accessibility is a human right, and everyone should have equal opportunity and access. That’s why he invited three YouTubers to the Apple campus recently to discuss Apple’s role on the subject in honour of Global Accessibility Awareness Day. The young filmmakers each have their own accessibility issue.
