A new wave of innovation is democratizing technology for people with disabilities. Automated image captioning technology and personal sound amplification devices are game changers for people with hearing loss – expanding their access to the web and helping them navigate noisy spaces. Connected thermostats, appliances and lighting offer people with limited mobility complete control of their environment from the palm of their hand. And wearables and sensors share real-time data with caregivers and loved ones – so you never have to feel alone. Join us as we explore the latest advancements in product design and application and their impact for seniors and people with disabilities.
