Apple does things very well when it comes to accessibility technology for people with speech, hearing, or vision impairments. A clear example of this is the 50 different models of devices that sync with iPhone to provide very useful user settings.
Many iPhone users with hearing difficulties use a cochlear implant . These accessories stimulate the hearing nerve and use an external sound processor to help people hear.
We must bear in mind that these implants are essential for many people, and even more so in the times in which we live. That is why Apple wanted to make this technology compatible by synchronising a new cochlear implant with the iPhone.
Sarah Herrlinger, director of accessibility and initiatives at Apple, has mentioned that the arrival of this new iPhone compatible implant will cause a great impact on society and help millions of people around the world.
The device has been announced by the company Cochlear on Wednesday. It allows people using the sound processor to stream audio on phone calls, podcasts, music and video calls from any iPhone, iPad and iPod touch model.
Users will be able to download an application called Nucleus Smart App to control in a much more precise way what they are listening to, instead of using a remote control as they have done for many years now.
Apple, together with Cochlear, has once again demonstrated that it is here to help all people through innovation in the world of technology . Without a doubt, we find this a commendable initiative, and we invite the rest of the companies to participate in similar projects. What do you think about this wonderful news? We look forward to hearing from you in the comments.
