AFB praises Nano, iTunes

Apple has taken some important steps in helping with disabilities, says the American Foundation for the Blind. The non-profit aid and activism organization is mainly praising of the fourth-generation iPod nano, to which Apple has added software options for talking menus, as well as larger fonts. Previously, claims AFB president Carl Augusto, it was enormously difficult to find a particular track or artist on an iPod without skipping songs repeatedly.

Apple has also improved the accessibility of iTunes, the AFB notes, by allowing screen reading at the iTunes Store, for tasks such as managing an account and shopping. Finally, the Accessibility section of Apple's website has been expanded, and provides information on a variety of topics such as braille displays and iTunes U.
