Techshare 2009 - Making the Most of Technology
Disability and the need for accessibility always was a source for new inventions. I want to show how over the times this desire for accessibility lead to a lot of our day to day items we don't want to miss particularly in our offices.
This talk was about the history of technology and which role accessibility took for innovation and could take for future development. I described that engineering is not only a technical but on the same time a social profession.
This combination tries to make the world a better place by innovation and inclusion of all - regardless of having a disability or not.
Techshare 2009 took place on 16 - 18 September 2009 at the ExCeL London conference and exhibition centre.
Techshare is a series of international events which highlight the importance of digital technology in the lives of people with disabilities. Join us in exploring how new innovations in assistive technology can enhance education, work, and play.
