It’s something not many of us think about — what about all the smartphone users in the world who are blind or suffer from low vision? Wouldn’t it be nice if they had a mobile OS that was accessible to them?

Well, Google’s got you covered in Android 4.0 with its new accessibility feature. We’ve seen AT&T introduce an app suite very similar to this a few months back and this works in almost the same way. Simply slide your fingers across the screen and the electronic lady will speak out whatever happens to be under your finger like apps or menu items. Having this built in to a mobile OS that’s available for any and all devices is nothing short of revolutionary. Seems we’re finding new things to love about Ice Cream Sandwich every day.

Thanks, Austin!
