About the Session

In the rapidly evolving digital landscape, it’s crucial to consider how technology can be harnessed to ensure inclusivity for individuals with diverse abilities. Have you ever wondered how a blind person navigates a computer or mobile device, how a deaf individual grasps the content embedded in an audio file, or how someone without hands operates digital interfaces?

The answer to these questions lies in the realm of Assistive Technologies (AT), a transformative field that caters to the unique needs of Persons with Disabilities. This session will shed light on the diverse range of ATs available, the alternatives and controls they offer, and the profound impact they have on accessibility.
