In response to Global Accessibility Awareness Day, Apple not only updated “Apple Accessibility” website, but also announced that its “Everyone Can Code” program will be expanding to schools that servicing students who are deaf, blind, and visually impaired.
Apple collaborated with engineers, educators, and programmers from various accessibility communities to make Everyone Can Code as accessible as possible and will work in close coordination with schools to augment the curricula as needed. This will include providing additional tools and resources such as tactile maps to enhance the understanding of coding environments for non-visual learners.
