The interview with Herrlinger was recorded at Apple’s Podcast studios at WWDC last week. During the interview, Herrlinger touts Apple’s commitment to accessibility and what it means to the company:
Accessibility is something that is very important to us as a company. We have a long history of thinking about accessibility in our products and I think we’re doing that in two ways. One is trying to build really innovative assistive technology and make sure that our products work for everyone because of the foundational assistive technologies we build in. Also, making everything that we make for everyone else accessible as well.
The full interview is definitely worth a lesson. The episode also features interviews with AssitiveWare CEO David Niemeijer, as well as WWDC 2018 scholar John Ciocca. The podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Overcast, and various other podcast platforms.
