Digital Accessibility And Why It Actually Matters

Welcome to episode 89 of the Blind Tech Guys. We trust you will enjoy this episode. As always, we thank you for your support and for being a part of the community.

 

Please see this announcement from Strap regarding a special code for Blind Tech Guys listeners.

 

Three years in the making, STRAP is an innovative, wearable device that fits over the chest and is designed to detect any type of obstacle. STRAP’s vast array of sensors works by sending real-time information that detects obstacles at your head, chest, and below your waist - including bumps, holes, and steps, then notifying you with haptic language vibrations.

 

Designed for all ages and shipped globally later this year.

 

At STRAP Technologies we believe autonomy and independence are human rights, not luxuries. Our goal is to be the first replacement of the white cane, giving the visually impaired a long overdue hands-free experience.

 

Use code BlindTech strap.tech, for 50% off the current total price of a STRAP device. Preorder today at this discounted price of $250 and pay only $50 at this time to reserve your STRAP. Once STRAP is shipped to you, you will be billed the remaining $200. This offer is just available with this Blind Tech Code.

 

Main Topic

 

We continue our series on accessibility by inviting a number of digital accessibility experts to the stage and discussing a variety of topics in the accessibility sphere, including websites, accessibility training, and numerous other topics that came up throughout the hour.

 

A third instalment on this topic will take place over the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye out for this to hit your favourite podcast app and thanks so much to all of you for the extremely positive feedback that we have been receiving so far and for the encouragement to truly explore what is, without doubt, a discussion that is so especially important to all of us.

 

We sincerely thank Rabeea Wajeeha, Catarina Rivera, Marco Salsiccia, Taylor Arndt, and Ted McCoskey for giving up so much of your valuable time and for such a frank and insightful discussion on digital accessibility and a massive thank you to Hamish McKenzie for assisting on the day to ensure that things ran smoothly on ClubHouse.
