This really shows apple's stance on accessibility


"Section 1194.21 Software applications and operating systems. Apple says Not
applicable" - Everyone knows it runs on a modified OSX

"Section 1194.22 Web-based intranet and internet information and
applications. Apple says Not applicable" - It utilizes a web browser

"Section 1194.24 Video and multimedia products. Apple says Not applicable" -
it uses YouTube and supports video.
