iPhone came out in June 2007. iPhone didn't become accessible with VoiceOver until June 2009 with the 3g version.

Subject: [WebAIM] History of accessibility

Does anyone have a good resource for the history of accessibility, such as closed captioning, texting, critical changes in law, game-changers, etc?
Also, does anyone know when exactly Apple included Accessibility settings in its iPhone? I had thought the initial release of the iPhone included it but I'm unable to verify.
