The tools, systems, and devices that we use to work, communicate and manage our day-to-day activities have made life more comfortable for almost everyone. Our digital transformation was meant to blur the lines of race, gender, age, and ability, but technology has more work to do to become truly inclusive, especially when considering accessibility for those with disabilities.
Our guest in this episode is Jeff Aronow. Jeff was born with a condition called Ocular Albinism, and is considered legally blind in the USA. However, upon moving to the UK he was upgraded to only “Sight Impaired.” With a visual acuity of 20/200 (or 6/60 if you are into the whole metric thing), we’ve asked Jeff to join us today to talk about his “view” on accessibility in the tech industry.
