How Apple Saved My Life https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6c_QjJjEks (4 min) This film is not sponsored or a paid product placement. This is merely my thanks to Apple. Growing up blind, the resources I had to help cope with my visual impairment were quite limited. It wasn't until I learned of Apple's efforts to make their products as accessibility friendly as possible, that I truly was able to perform stronger in school, online, on the streets, and with my art. This is the story of how Apple saved my life at a time when my mental illness was the worse it had ever been. --James Rath Apple Accessibility https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIl2EzNYri0cLtSlZowttih25VnSvWITu Taking a family portrait.
