A Talk by Rev Gail Thompson
About this talk
While much progress has been made in some areas of development of assistive tech, the overall picture emerging from the latest data is that disabled people are facing more barriers and falling further behind in regard to the use of technology. It is a badge of shame on our society that millions of disabled people in Britain are still not being treated as equal citizens. Despite the emphasis in mechanics and the rapid proliferation of assistive smart devices, fragmented systems mean that little is known about the technology as well as the systems and processes of acquisition.
