Emojis can be fun can’t they? There’s so many to pick from and so many of us, blind and sighted alike, use them in comments and text messages. Yes, even blind people use mobile phones and enjoy the emojis too! Recently there has been articles published about emoji’s coming out depicting people with disabilities. These include a wheelchair, a white cane and more. I personally think this is great. To me, it means people are taking that little (and yet huge) step in thinking about the importance of inclusion. Forbes has a great article about these new emojis below if you want to check it out.
NPR wrote a good article I’ll also include below if you want to give it a read.
