Stevie Wonder thanks Steve Jobs for iOS and its accessibility features
During a special appearance at a Los Angeles nightclub, Stevie Wonder took time out to thank Steve Jobs and Apple for making technology that is accessible for everyone. During his set where he was ad-libbing to his songs and playing other tracks, he stopped to talk about helping others with disabilities.
"I want you all to give a hand to someone that you know whose health is very bad at this time. But for someone who, and his company, took the challenge in making his technology accessible to everyone, in the spirit of carrying and moving the world forward: Steve Jobs. Because there's nothing on the iPhone or the iPad that you can do that I can't do. As a matter of fact, I can be talking to you, you can be looking at me, and I can be doing whatever I need to do, and you won't even know what I'm doing. Yeah!"
The accessibility features available to iOS users are often forgotten about. Voiceover, Zoom, Large Text and White on Black all make using iOS a much easier and pleasant experience for those that need them. You can see Steve Wonder deliver his thanks to Steve Jobs and Apple in the video below. It is around the 4.38 mark. Unfortunately the quality is not great!
