Show Description

Aleeha, Michael, and Jason discuss a feature called Accessibility Events, and how it, along with other data developers have access to information that could impact your privacy. This feature is included with iOS 12.2 and macOS Mojave version 10.14.4. It enables the detection of accessibility features when you visit websites. As stated by Apple, “Accessibility Events is a sub-feature of the Accessibility Object Model (AOM) project, an emerging web technology currently under development as a joint W3C effort by Apple, Google, and the Mozilla Foundation.” You can find out more about Accessibility Events and how they are used by reading Apple’s support article.
