It's all about the accessibility features that we've designed and built into our products. We believe that technology should be accessible to everyone, and we hope this website becomes a great resource that people can use all around the world.

Cook says that Apple believes that if people have access to its product they can help push humanity forward and "change the world in the process." Before Cook came to the stage, Apple played a short video showcasing customers using the available accessibility features.

Apple's accessibility website should go live once the event is complete. Currently, Apple's older accessibility website is still live.

Apple's October 2016 Special Event is ongoing.

Good to know that Apple is doing this and I'll be looking at the new website as soon as it goes live.

I know a person who has recently lost all vision, and was hoping there is a way to use an iPhone, and iPad using only the home button and voice commands.
Actually there has long been a really good built-in way to use the whole SCREEN without vision. I have my sight, but when I test Voiceover mode, even without practice I can get around apps and web pages really well. iPhone and iPad really revolutionized computing without sight.
