    Technology For Good # 11 Accessibility For All

    Technology For Good # 11 Accessibility For All

    In this episode we are focusing on ICT accessibility - specifically for persons with disabilities. People who identify as living with disability represent 15% of the world’s population, which is currently around 1 billion people. Within this population there exists a very wide array of disabilities encompassing physical mobility, autism and speech delays, persons who are deaf and hard of hearing, and persons with visual disability . Up to 70% of disabilities are invisible but they can still present a barrier to access and use the growing range of information technologies available.

    This episode explores innovations in the accessibility space from established companies like Google and Microsoft to the new softwares and entrepreneurial ventures developed by people living with disability who experienced and realised a need that was not being met, and did something about it.
