Apple has made it easier for people with disabilities to find accessibility-focused accessories in its online store. The store now features a dedicated accessibility section, gathering products such as braille displays, switches, and specialized mice in one section of the store. The accessibility area can be found both on the web and in the Apple Store app for iPhone and iPad.
Products include the AbleNet TrackerPro (opens in new tab) that helps people with limited hand movement navigate around their Mac. You can also find the Spec Switch (opens in new tab), which lets you control different functions on your Mac, iPhone, or iPad.
Apple is also said to be planning to sell these sorts of devices in its retail stores, though it's currently unknown when they might begin doing so.
