TikTok Star Lucy Edwards’s Favorite Accessibility Apps

Great story from the App Store about Lucy Edwards, a blind TikTok star:

“When you lose your eyesight, it’s not only the grief and loss and trauma of that event. You are reminded every time you wake up that you can’t see,” says Edwards, who lost sight in her right eye by age 11 due to a rare genetic condition. When she was 17, a retinal detachment in her left eye caused her to become completely blind.

I’ve got a soft spot for accessibility in general, but you say “retinal detachment” and you’ve got my attention. This is a great list of apps — both the apps she uses to shoot her videos, and the apps she uses for daily life.
