Exploring Braille and Apple Accessibility with Dr. Robert Carter on The Road to Macstock

Chuck Joiner once again treats us to a behind the scenes look at Macstock, it’s presenters, and sponsors in his special MacVoices video series, The Road to Macstock! In this installment of The Road to Macstock 2017 Chuck chats with Dr. Robert Carter about assistive technology, Apple accessibility, and his upcoming talk at Macstock 2017 on why braille integration with Apple’s operating systems is important.

Our next stop on the Road to Macstock takes us to Dr. Robert Carter, who provides some perspective on how blind users interact with their technology. Modern devices have opened up many things to those with visual challenges, but the costs associated with those devices can be challenging.
