Way to go Apple

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

Amidst all the Apple announcements today this one may get lost in the shuffle, but it’s worth drawing attention to. This is part of an E-Mail I received today as an iTunesU administrator.

Using iTunes 8 with a screen reader such as VoiceOver on Mac OS X, or GW Micro WIndow-Eyes 7 on Windows XP and Windows Vista, blind and visually impaired students, faculty, and staff can browse, search, buy, download and play content from iTunes U and many areas of the iTunes Store. In addition, the new iPod nano (4th generation) features spoken menus, so it can be used to navigate and play tracks downloaded from the iTunes Store and iTunes U just by listening.

Way to go Apple!
