iPhone and iPad are tops for People with Disabilities

An interesting preliminary report that has recently been issued reflecting the results of a survey:

While the iPhone does well, it's the iPad which really shines here, and that's not surprising when one considers the various uses to which it has been applied by people with disabilities and their families.

I can only hope that disabled people will appreciate the Surface RT and its many wonders.

Yeah, I personally get a lot out of using the AssistiveTouch and Dictation on my iPad.

I think a lot of people have benefitted from both the iPhone and the iPad in many ways that Apple had not even dreamed about when they were creating them! Apple's iPad is certainly leading the pack, at least right now, in terms of this sort of device and its usefulness to everyone.
