When we talk about Accessible Technologies we usually think about technology that helps people with disabilities to have equal access.  However, accessibility works the other way around, the technology created with people with disabilities in mind can also make every body else’s life easier.

One good example of that are the accessibility features on the Apple mobile devices that can simplify the way you chat with others or provide you alternate ways to access information.
