It is a universal truth that all artists think they a frauds and charlatans, and live in constant fear of being exposed. We believe by working harder than anyone else we can evade detection. The bean-counters rumbled this centuries ago and have been profitably exploiting this weakness ever since. You don’t have to drive creative folk like most workers. They drive themselves. Just wind ‘em up and let ‘em go.

Apple is finally taking a more proactive stance to begin integrating accessibility features into their iOS 6 platform. So far the updates seem fairly minimal, but it’s a step in the right direction.

Apple accessibility

Apple’s Guided Access locks the user into a single app and restricts access to specific screen navigation elements to provide enhanced tast focus.

Mobile, and especially touchscreen, has traditionally been plagued with accessibility issues, which is partly due to the relative newness of the platform as well as inherent form factor limitations. At the same time, mobile is also the one area that has the largest capacity to affect change in the lives of those with disabilities.

Hopefully we’ll start to see more mobile applications that consider the 19% of the population who have some type of disability.
