Apple says its app stores are working to make it easier for people with hearing loss to access apps that are designed specifically for people like them.
In a blog post, the company said that the Audible app for iPhone and iPad has been made available in a few languages and that people with a hearing loss can now sign up to receive free audiobooks through Audible’s “Audible Access Program.”
The program launched in August.
Apple said it had been working with audiobook publishers to get the app into their apps as early as possible, and that Audible will provide a “solution” in the coming weeks.
The company also announced that Audirex and other companies have been working to add Audible support for their apps.
The app will let people use the app to find audiobuds and buy audio books.
It also will let users buy audiobucks and audiobots, which are audioboys that use hearing aids and can be used to buy music.
The Audible apps are accessible through the Apple app store, and are available in the United States, Australia, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.
