Years ago (maybe 2012), I had spoken to someone who has a disability and they said that apple was the only one that created accessibility features that work for them after they tried linux. It sucks for them if apple is the one that has a lead on this. Is it still the case?

He is indeed using Apple, he was looking to buy a used MacBook just last month after his old one gave up the ghost - he had problems both with easy set-up of mobile mouse (borked with iOS->Ubuntu, and KDE Connect is still Android-only AFAIK), and the fact the screen on iOS pulls down to allow him to access the top icons (while Android just sort-of shrinks in the middle, and getting it to work properly with custom ROMs is complex).

I attended a lecture on accessibility last year, as part of a web development course. The speaker briefly demonstrated built-in accessibility features on macOS and compared them to clunkier third-party alternatives on Windows.
