iPhone Accessibility By Tim O'Brien
Tim O'Brien's blog is about photography and accessibility. He recently got an iPhone and has a beef about the information available about its accessibility for the blind and visually impaired:
Learning about the iPhone and its apps is easy. Besides the Apple web site and the iTunes store, there are many dedicated blogs and web sites. Interesting iPhone news makes it onto more general tech and news sites. But there is little about the iPhone's accessibility to the blind and visually impaired. Apple offers its view on iPhone accessibility, but Apple's site looks to reflect its marketing campaign more than the engineering and design.
Tim has started his own iPhone accessibility page, with guidelines for developers wanting to make iPhone apps more accessible, general information about iPhone accessiblity as well as reviews of specific iPhone applications he's used.
It's already a site jam packed with useful information, and seems to be growing at an astounding rate. Congratulations, Tim, and keep up the good work - I'll be adding this to our Resources page right now!
