Apple Patents Touch Graphics User Interface for Vision Impaired - from Cult Of Mac

This patent was lodged in September 2009 and has now been ratified by the Patent’s office in the US.  It will be interesting to see what type of implications this has for other touch screen systems that have copied Apple’s touch screen interface for vision impaired users, such as Android.
