Continued frustrations: My Apple exam

There are exams and then there are exams. If I were to categorize my Apple certification exam, which I wrote on August 4, 2020, I would say that it was probably one of the most stressful but at the same time interesting of all!


From the start, this exam was never meant to be a smooth one but Shane was absolutely superb in ensuring that I had the best chance to succeed and succeed I did!


This exam was not accessible for a vision-impaired person. The developers of Apple's exams are still very much behind when it comes to accessibility and they do not seem to fully understand.


My first interaction with Apple exams was two years ago in 2018 and nothing much has changed since then. Several questions are difficult to understand for someone who is vision-impaired and requires sighted assistance to navigate and describe.


Additional time for a person with a disability to write is offered, but alas! At the end of regular time one is kicked out of the exam and is unable to re-enter to complete the exam.


Hopefully these glitches will be rectified in the near future and I look forward to working with Apple and the administrators of their exams to make things more accessible.
