“The measure of a man, or woman, is not so much what they have accomplished, though that has weight. It often is much more though what that man or woman has overcome to accomplish what they have.” ~ Leif Gregerson
Apple wants to see a host of new emojis introduced, all aimed at better representing people with disabilities in texts and other digital communications. 13 new emojis show people using manual and power wheelchairs, service dogs, prosthetics, among others. Many icons have male and female versions and variants for skin tone as well.
The group was slated to meet last month and the new icons could be added in 2019. Apple has worked with American Council of the Blind, Cerebral Palsy Foundation, and National Association of the Deaf to help develop the emojis. It’s not meant to be a comprehensive list, but a starting point for greater representation for diversity. 18 emojis are available for download now at SCOPE.
