  • very good evening to everybody.

  • If you ask me, What's that one thing beyond my friends and family that impacted my life the most, I will say, without a shadow of a doubt, It was technology.

  • Ever since it stepped in, my life changed 1 80 degree.

  • I could easily divide my life into two phases.

  • One before technology on the other after technology.

  • Yet I would like to describe my relationship with technology as that off a frenemy.

  • Yes, you heard it, right?

  • Family, something that possesses a quality off a friend on enemy.

  • And I can assure you millions of people with disabilities around the world feel the same to my talk.

  • Let's understand, why do I explain or refer to technology as a frenemy?

  • I grew up in the line, a very regular, low key family.

  • I used to go to the school fight with my brother, had a very protective family.

  • Everything was all very normal until I was 13 years old.

  • It was then I was diagnosed off this condition called retinitis pigmentosa.

  • I wasn't formed that over the Peter of time I will lose my ability to see eventually becoming blind in the next few years, not only my eyesight came down, but also my aspirations.

  • Confidence on the cell foot, I would wonder how would ever complete my education when it's so difficult for me to even read books?

  • I would be very I would be very Oh on No, I'm very jealous off my friends when they would get all these new gadgets, new laptops, the iPods move by foods, and they will do all this amazing thing on.

  • I would be there at the corner, sulky, wondering, How will I ever use these wonderful gadgets I always used to wonder.

  • Every job in the future will require me to operate computers, but with my ability, I will not be able to do that Ever will always be a parasite, someone who's dependent on others for every small and last thing.

  • Fortunately, a lot of this change when I was introduced to this, fraid for technology.

  • On While I talk a lot about information technology, I would want you to think technology in the most purest form.

  • It's all those devices that help us achieve, goes reduces human efforts.

  • I was first introduced to the technology called Scream leaders, which allowed me to access mobile phones and computers.

  • It's a sophisticated piece off software that converts all the visual elements on your desktop screen, including text into spoken output.

  • So suddenly bloody screen in front of me became alive.

  • I was now able to navigate through the file exploder.

  • I was able to activate the menus on.

  • I was able to engage with the content that empowered me to do several things amongst these included.

  • It allowed me to read it.

  • No known little.

  • Why didn't maybe Mito complete my education but also indulged myself into this wonderful world of books?

  • It restored my confidence because now I was able to operate the productivity suits on.

  • I knew I could create documents, learn new things, analyzed data on create presentation.

  • I was able I was able to navigate, traveled, avoid with the assurance that I will not be lost and my safety it's taking get as long as I have a mobile food with, ah, good connectivity and GPS.

  • It also allowed me to restore my independence.

  • I was able to shop online.

  • I was able to operate my bank account.

  • I think I was also able to play games.

  • Scream leaders are a type of assistive technology, their type of a technology call assistive technology on millions of people with disability used different types of technology that helped them to live with independence.

  • Some of these include hearing it.

  • Phil Organizer's memory features white kids and many more assistive technology has helped people with disabilities live a life of dignity, confidence on independence.

  • It has opened new doors, new opportunities on help us achieve some remarkable things way all heard about way.

  • We all heard about Dr Stephen Hawkings, right?

  • But unfortunately, it's just assistive.

  • Technology is just not enough to provide access to people with disabilities for technologies like website Software's transportation service is if all that has to be inclusive for people with for people with disabilities, it has to be accessible.

  • Accessibility is the features off your technology that allows people off right range of disabilities to access them.

  • Some of the examples it could be directly accessible.

  • So, for example, a smartphone that has an in built screen leader is directly accessible, or it could be compatible with an assistive technology.

  • So, for example, of Web sites or a mobile phone app that doesn't have a gable with us.

  • Refresh Hable Brill Display for a deaf blind user is compatible with assistive technology.

  • On This is where you know I talk about the enemy part off it as much as we want.

  • Much of the technology is not accessible.

  • There was a study done earlier this year with surveyed Chris tested about a 1,000,000 website home pages for access abilities on, You'll be surprised to know the result 99% off.

  • The website surveyed hard accessibility challenges.

  • As a result, much of the Web becomes inaccessible.

  • Inaccessibility is a serious enemy.

  • It creates a creates barriers.

  • It restricts our opportunity.

  • It limited choices.

  • It makes us dependent on it normally affects a larger, larger issues, like employment education, but also in our day to day activities.

  • Let me give you a few examples.

  • I cannot download my heart card independently because the Web site asks me to fill a capture, which uses which doesn't work with my screen readers.

  • I always have to, you know, I have to forego all the discounts in the food take and online shopping because only a handful of these technologies work with my screen readers.

  • I cannot enjoy my friends and Siri's, because most of them do not have ordered description, innit?

  • It's interesting that Point Introduces have Karos off a piece for the costume design set design songs and down sequence, but they don't have thousands off the piece to incorporate order.

  • Description on the misery doesn't end there dressed Streaming Platforms, which has life, insists broadcast International Data's My New.

  • Many of these international titles have signed, like have audio description included in it.

  • But when these when these streaming platforms day broadcast those titles in India, they're very conveniently omitted the order description on their many such other examples.

  • Have you ever thought how difficult it could be for the people?

  • People who has a vision, disability toe access, bus transportation system?

  • It's nearly impossible for me to really identify the numbers and board on it independently.

  • Imagine the plight of a village.

  • A user goingto hospital on.

  • Dhe sees that examining examination bed are all at a certain height on there's movie that they can transfer themselves.

  • Hospitals don't even have the weighing scales that can am able to measure the weight off wheelchair users.

  • So inaccessibility is all around us.

  • It's a CD, its enemy but this enemy can be bitchy.

  • But before we come to, how can it be?

  • Bitch?

  • Many off, you would ask.

  • Uncle, I understand I sympathize with your cause, but why should I?

  • I'm weak.

  • Or why should you care to make your technologies are accessible or friendly for people with disabilities.

  • So I have two responses.

  • A carrot and a stick.

  • Characters that we all want a paradox to be used by as many people as possible.

  • You'll be surprised to know that there are more than a 1,000,000,000 people in the planet which has one or the other form of disability that makes it 15%.

  • Extrapolated to India will be a population off 200 million.

  • Even with the most conservative estimates, population is higher than the population of Delhi and Mumbai put together.

  • Clearly, it's a large enough population for North service provider.

  • No technology provided ms.

  • In addition, there are studies which indicates that people with disabilities and the immediate friends and family has a huge disposable income.

  • Some estimates peg the number at $8 trillion.

  • Now.

  • If you contrast that India's GDP is roughly a tree trillion dollars so that disposable income is nearly three times off India's total GDP, so clearly there is enough incentive for you to do it.

  • But even if this cat doesn't inspire you, that there's a stick stick off government, making it mandatory for technology and service providers.

  • To incorporate accessibility.

  • India has the rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, which has provided timelines and guide guidelines on making products and services accessible.

  • Moreover, there many countries in which you cannot do business with the government.

  • If you're productive, a north accessible eventually.

  • If you so yes, there is a carrot, and that is a stick him.

  • You need to kind of understand making products and service.

  • Is our technologies more family for people with disabilities?

  • As I conclude, I wouldn't wantto leave a few things on.

  • How could you start this stage Number one?

  • No Maka video.

  • You are a technology developer, marketeer entrepreneur.

  • Pique interest in people with disabilities engaged with them.

  • No, no Johnny off.

  • Making your products accessible can begin without without understanding what makes it in excessive ill at the first place.

  • Cry.

  • Engaging with the community with stakeholders your employees on, you'll be able to understand very a product is not accessible number to take interest.

  • Inaccessibility as a user off technologies.

  • And there's so many of them that you use.

  • Try to understand how this throwed out can be used by people with disabilities.

  • All of you own a smartphone.

  • Why don't you open the settings and the generals option on check out the videos.

  • Accessibility option.

  • And how does it help people with disabilities Familiar yourself for accessibility guidelines like the Web content accessibility guidelines, which can make be spurred outs?

  • And so this is accessible if they aren't prescribed standards.

  • Familiar yourself.

  • Something universal design principle that will provide valuable guidance on how to go about making products accessible not only for people with disabilities but a wide range of abilities, including senior citizens, pregnant moment, small Children and how much more.

  • Lastly, I would want to say embrace emerging technology to Livia at a very interesting tipping point where the traditional technologies like cars, washing machines, refrigerators on a number of things, are intersecting with emerging technologies off futures like artificial intelligence, Internet off things, augmented reality, virtual reality.

  • All of them has tremendous potential in reducing barriers that people with disability face.

  • However, it's important to get the 1st 2 steps right.

  • It's important to understand, engage with people with disabilities.

  • What are the barriers on dhe?

  • Then find a solution and not retrofitting it as I leave, I would want to just leave you with one part.

  • Limitations off a body is something is an easy challenge.

  • It's aboard.

  • It's our body.

  • We live it to really know howto handle it.

  • But the problem stems when there are barriers that existed Environment imposes on us on.

  • A lot can change if people you know a lot of things can change V s people.

  • You know, when we do not get excited, really about artificial intelligence, user, human intelligence to really make a difference.

  • Our difference between friend and an enemy with that.

  • Thank you so much for this.

very good evening to everybody.
