Hey Bay Area! Any one interested in buying my great condition PURPLE Nintendo 3DS with 4 games? DM me.

(No, I won’t ship it)

As someone who spends lots of time commuting to and from work and training this is so awesome. Social media doesn’t make me feel connected. Phone calls do.

Please let me know if you’re on telegram and you’d like to be talk on the phone from time to time!

Big news. HUGE. Do you want to come work on iOS Accessibility? At @Apple@twitter.com? On my team?! Well here you go: jobs.apple.com/en-us/details/2

(Before you DM me: this is a Cupertino based role.)

Come make a big difference, not just in tech, but in lives!

Someone: “Sommer! So I saw this cross walk with the bumps but then across the street was just a pile of garbage and no bumps and I thought of you!”

Me: “um...”

Someone: “you know! Accessibility!”

Me: “what exactly do you think my job is...?”

Tonight I told a guy what I do for work & he started to explain my own job to me…

BUT THEN mid sentence, he caught himself & said, “but you already know this. B/c it’s your job. So what I’m trying to say is I am thinking about what you do & I find it interesting & important!”😂

Me: “I can get away with working remote just one day. It’s been a quiet week.”

Work: “lol no I have rained hellfire upon you overnight.”

“By destigmatizing assistive technologies and making them ubiquitous, we can make them like curb cuts: devices that help everyone.”

Fantastic read!

Exactly! Accessibility is about and for anyone and everyone.

RT @UINT_MIN@twitter.com

@Sommer@twitter.com It's not like disabilities aren't /enough/ of a reason to implement these, but I know a ton of people who use Magnifier for demo purposes, and I used Invert Colors to ease my eyes before Dark Mode was a thing. Accessibility features aren't automatically just for certain people.

Ever wondered how to use certain features from Apple? Check out these great videos!

One of the lesser known but very powerful features of iOS gets the @NSHipster@twitter.com treatment. And it’s awesome. Learn all about Guided Access! nshipster.com/guided-access/

Today marks exactly 3 years employed at Apple (including my first stint). 🎉

OH: “So my grandpa always said that black & white tv was better bc the colors felt more real-life. We thought he was joking but then found out years later he was totally color blind!” (achromatopsia)

In case ever you wondered how greyscale mode might rly help some phone users!

If it were not for the phone paging feature of my Apple Watch, today would have had a rough start. As my phone was in my sock 🧦 drawer. In other news, I think I need more sleep.
