Apple Ignores the Deaf again with iPhone

First iPod. Now iPhone. iPods don’t support captions or subtitling. iPhones aren’t compatible with hearing aids and cochlear implants. Paula Rosenthal has been speaking up loud and clear about the issue that ComputerWorld heard her and others.
Disappointing. Apple dares to be different, but it doesn’t recognize those of us who are different.
