AppleVis is a community-powered website for vision-impaired users of Apple's range of Mac computers, the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The website is managed by a small team of volunteers. We do not have any affiliations with other organizations and receive no external funding or sponsorship.
Apple includes assistive technology in these products as standard features, whilst 3rd-party developers have seen the potential of OS X and the iOS platform in particular to create and deliver solutions specifically for the blind and those with low vision. The result has been a convergence of mainstream and assistive technologies onto single devices that are accessible to the vision-impaired. This is why they have been adopted in such large numbers by the community, and why the need for a resource such as AppleVis arose.
