Accessibility is not a ‘Feature’, and Developers Should Never Treat it as Such | AppleVis

But accessibility is different. Support for VoiceOver (and other assistive technologies built into iOS) isn’t a feature, something “nice to have” if a group of people vote it high enough on a list. Rather, implementing accessibility support is an essential part of the design process which ensures all users have equal access to an app. Implementing support for VoiceOver isn’t an idea you check off the list once done and forget about; it requires an ongoing commitment, and it requires a developer who understands the value of inclusive design. (An accessible design is also more likely to be a design which is more usable by everyone, even those not using accessibility features.) Implementing support for VoiceOver means the difference between whether blind people can use an app or not. And at its core, implementing VoiceOver support is about doing the right thing—simply because it’s the right thing to do.
