Apple proposes 13 emojis representing those with disabilities

Today, Apple has submitted dozens of new emojis and also representing those emojis with hearing, motor disabilities, and vision.

According to the reports, the company added the emoji of service dogs, emojis of guides, people with canes, people in wheelchairs, prosthetic limbs and individuals signing the word “deaf.” In its Unicode Consortium proposal, Apple said:

“This is not meant to be a comprehensive list of all possible depictions of disabilities, but to provide an initial starting point for greater representation for diversity within the emoji universe,”

According to the company, Apple worked with the American Council of the Blind, the Cerebral Palsy Foundation and the National Association of the Deaf for the development of 13 proposed additions.  Apple said:

“Currently, emoji provide a wide range of options, but may not represent the experiences of those with disabilities. Diversifying the options available helps fill a significant gap and provides a more inclusive experience for all.”

Unicode has approved 157 new emojis which will be released in phones somewhere in August. The emojis include female superheroes, red-haired individuals, and more skin tone options. Now, the Unicode Technical Committee will review the emojis proposed by Apple.
