Apple is highlighting the ability for the iOS ecosystem’s accessibility functions to help the visually impaired, by sharing how one blind US Navy veteran uses the iPhone XR to prepare for his daily surfing sessions.

Published by Apple on Friday, the report features Scott Leason, a veteran who was stationed on the USS Tripoli amphibious ship as a visual communications expert. After seven years of service, Leason was blinded both eyes in July 1993 by a robber’s bullet, making him unable to continue in his role.

The US Department of Veterans Affairs’ Blind Rehabilitation Center provided a computer and technology training to Leason in 2009. In 2012, Leason was provided the iPhone 5 and more training from assistant chief of Blind Rehabilitation at the Tibor Rubin VA Medical Center in Long Beach Sara Majidzadeh.
