The iPhone epitomizes this, but a strong argument can be made that Apple has also led a software revolution equally as transformative but without nearly the bang in terms of press coverage.

Consider someone with low vision.

We see accessibility as a basic human right, said Sarah Herrlinger, Senior Manager for Global Accessibility Policy and Initiatives at Apple.

Although people with disabilities represent a small subset of Apple s total user base, it isn t an insignificant group.

What makes Overcast so great for accessibility is it has great VoiceOver support, Dynamic Type, and gigantic buttons on the Now Playing screen.

Given Apple s stature as the biggest company in the world, sitting on a war chest of unfathomable size, that they do this work in spite of the bloody ROI is truly admirable.
