AbleNet: Reaching Further

About session

We will go through the accessibility of consumer electronics such as i-devices and how AbleNet interface with them, looking at the present and the future. Hopefully the attendees will have a better understanding of the workings of companies such as Apple and their philosophy for accessibility, while also seeing AbleNet products that interface with Apple products.
