We rely on our phones for everything from booking hotels to finding the best tacos in Austin. Innovators are working to bring the efficiencies of tech to users of all abilities, with programs that can help a blind father cook or a deaf musician record an album. Tech has revolutionized disability access, and developers and creators are exploring ways to enhance user experience across abilities and platforms. This panel discusses why accessibility in tech is important and why more must be done.
