Apple To Make iTunes More Accessible To The Blind

Apple will be working to make its iTunes service more accessible to the blind after reaching an agreement with the Massachusetts attorney general’s office and the National Federation of the Blind. Known as iTunes U, this portion of the iTunes Store will feature educational content provided by colleges and universities to the blind from December 31st onwards, and this is just the beginning as Apple will also continue working on providing full accessibility of the iTunes application and the remainder of the iTunes Store before the June 30, 2009 deadline. In addition, Apple will be loosening up its purse strings by donating $250,000 to the Massachusetts Commission for the Blind. Nice to see Apple paying closer attention to users from all walks of life.
