We all know the vision: All the knowledge. Every single human being.

To achieve this, we need to support users across geographies and languages, but also people with different physical abilities. 

The iOS team, along with others at the foundation, are taking the next week to focus on how we can make our app, and projects, easier for people with visual impairments. We're working with an expert blind developer named Austin Seraphin[1] to make sure we get it right, but we also need your help!
