While whole world is experiencing unprecedented situation, it has also grown the use of technology to a great extent specially in the area of education. All learnings are now gone digital. Even schools are sending pre-recorded videos for primary class children; live virtual classes are being organiszed for grown-up children. Several training programs and events have been moved to virtual place.
This is in a way great thing for people with disabilities especially those with vision impairment. There are increased conversations to ensure digital platforms are accessible.
Not just education, but technology is playing a role in every industry including health care, banking, industrial, rehabilitation agencies and almost everywhere. This hopefully increases employment opportunities in the area of accessibility.
I have been working in the area of accessibility for 16+ years and learnt a lot of things (still learning) from many experts! I will be hosting a live talk on how to get started in the area of accessibility as a career on 11th July, 2020 at 15:00 Hrs IST (3:00pm IST). This talk will be live on YouTube.
Please leave a comment on this post if you have a question that you would want me to talk about. There will be an opportunity where questions may be asked during live session.
See you next week.
