Apple offers new ASL service

Apple is launching a new service called SignTime.



Customers can use it to communicate with AppleCare directly on their web browsers using ASL (in the US), BSL (in the UK) or LSF (in France). The service will maker interpreters available to customers when they visit the Apple Store without booking an interpreter in advance. In a news release, Sarah Herrlinger, Apple’s senior director of Global Accessibility Policy and Initiatives, said:

“At Apple, we’ve long felt that the world’s best technology should respond to everyone’s needs, and our teams work relentlessly to build accessibility into everything we make. With these new features, we’re pushing the boundaries of innovation with next-generation technologies that bring the fun and function of Apple technology to even more people — and we can’t wait to share them with our users.”
