Apple makes great efforts to raise awareness of and advocate for accessibility, especially for people with disabilities.

“We see accessibility as a basic human right,” says Sarah Herrlinger, Senior Manager for Global Accessibility Policy and Initiatives at Apple. “Building into the core of our products supports a vision of an inclusive world where opportunity and access to information are barrier-free, empowering individuals with disabilities to achieve their goals.”

On Apple’s Global Accessibility Awareness Day May 19, they updated their Accessibility apps collection, highlighting iOS apps and developers who are helping make the world better for all. The apps are categorized by need, including vision, hearing, speech, and what Apple calls “Accessible Home with Siri.” Like it does with its other app collections, Apple refreshes the accessibility one periodically. Importantly, these updates help spread the word about developers who offer great, albeit specialized, apps.

Among them is Cochlear’s Baha 5 Smart App!
