Recently, Apple CEO Tim Cook sat down and chatted with three separate YouTube personalities to discuss accessibility in light of Global Accessibility Awareness Day.
Apple has been celebrating the global event for an entire week, and actually finished the celebrations in connection with its annual “Beer Bash” festivities. Apple invited the musical artist Stevie Wonder onto its campus for a GAAD concert, which the executives actually kept a secret up until the event took place. There are a variety of different images circulating the internet now, showing the concert in action:

Stevie Wonder has been a source of positive reinforcement for Apple’s accessibility features baked into its software, both for Macs and iOS. Wonder has actually starred in a piece of promotional material for Apple in the past, showing off the VoiceOver feature in macOS.
