The Accessibility of Everyone Can Code

Lori Hawkins, reporting for 512tech:

Ober and fellow students at the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired spent Wednesday morning with a team from Apple Inc. learning to code and then using the code to pilot small drones.

“It’s really cool because a lot of us really good on computers and want to create apps, but there aren’t the tools,” said Ober, 18, who is legally blind. “This technology opens up more possibilities.”

The event was Apple’s first in-school coding session for students who are blind and low vision.

The story also mentions Apple will be represented at next week’s SXSW, where they’ll discuss the Everyone Can Code initiative and how it was built to be accessible to all.
