MAKING COVID-19 INFO EASY TO UNDERSTAND WORLDWIDE

In India and globally, amid the continuing COVID crisis, one of the big challenges faced by Persons with Disabilities (PWD) is their inability to access vital information and resources published by governments and organizations because this information is not digitally accessible to persons with disabilities.

Thursday, May 20th, was “World Accessibility Day”. To commemorate this global accessibility awareness day, Vision-Aid organized a special webinar on the important topic of making Covid-19 information accessible for persons with disabilities.

John is leading a crowd sourced initiative using Artificial Intelligence technology to make information accessible, readable, and easily understandable. For more info, see EasyCOVID19.org and EasyText.AI.
