Disability-themed emojis coming soon to smartphones

Emojis are also becoming more inclusive!

Disability-themed emojis will be part of the new group of approved emojis. The new accessibility emojis were introduced after Apple proposed adding emojis of a hearing aid, a guide dog, prosthetic limbs and people using canes and wheelchair users in 2018. Among the new designs are men and women of different ethnicity in wheelchairs, using white canes, and wearing hearing aids. There is also an emoji of a man or woman with a finger by one of their ears which is meant to signal that they are deaf.
