Is Accessibility Really Part of Technology Design or an Afterthought?

Episode 1784 (1:46:38)

Julian from Los Angeles, CA
iPhone iPad Accessibility

Julian Vargas of TechJV is our resident accessibility expert, and he's calling in to comment on the caller in hour one who doesn't like touchscreen monitors because they don't really help the blind. Julian says that's doesn't mean they shouldn't exist or any other technology. The more technology advances, the more accessibility can be built into it. But it must be part of the design so those who are blind can still take advantage of technology advancements. The iPhone is a perfect example. Julian says that Google Lens is a great app for making your Android devices more accessible. The app can use the phone camera to take an image and identify it and read it.
