Apple is proposing to add emojis to represent people with disabilities. Apple requested the Unicode Consortium to add 13 new emojis including a guide dog, hearing aid and people using wheelchairs and canes.
Currently, Apple only has one disability-related emoji in use and that is the “wheelchair symbol”. If Unicode approves Apple’s proposal, their new accessibility emojis could launch in the second half of 2019.
