Apple Gets Socially Inclusive With Proposed Accessibility Emojis

X

Apple is creating more inclusion with its emojis by adding a range of accessibility emojis, representing the disabled community which are no where to be seen in the current offering.

Emojipedia says there are 45 emojis in total ranging from guide dogs, men and women in wheelchairs, hearing aids and prosthetic arm and leg.

In its submission to Unicode Consortium, a non-profit regulator coordinating the development of the Unicode standard, Apple writes, “Apple is requesting the addition of emoji to better represent individuals with disabilities. Currently, emoji provide a wide range of options, but may not represent the experiences of those with disabilities.”

Apple also says this is a starting point, acknowledging this range is “not meant to be a comprehensive list of all possible depictions of disabilities.”

If these emojis are approved you should see them on your iOS devices in the first half of 2019.
