Qantas Offers Accessible In-Flight Entertainment on the iPad


David Woodbridge recently took a Qantas flight from Melbourne to Sydney. During the flight, he had the option of testing out the in-flight entertainment system on an iPad provided by the airline. He really didn't know what to expect, but he was optimistic. Much to his surprise, triple click home turned on VoiceOver, and the entertainment app was very compatible with VoiceOver. He even said in his blog post on AppleVis that he was so excited about the accessibility of the system that he lost all track of time. Since the iPad is the most popular tablet, hopefully other airlines will follow in Qantas's footsteps, and offer accessible in-flight entertainment for their customers. If you've experienced other in-flight entertainment options on other airlines that were accessible, tell us about your experience in the comments.
