Accessibility for Visually Impaired and Blind People

Sight Tech Global 2021 FlyerSight Tech Global is an event about AI and the future of accessibility for visually impaired and blind people. Accessibility for visually impaired and blind people is crucial to progress. The next event will take place December 1-2, 2021. At last year’s event, Apple and Microsoft announced a remarkable tool that could enhance the lives of blind people—“scene description.” The AI cloud-based technology could inform users as to what was located in the room they are in. The tool could serve as a set of eyes for those who have lost their vision.

This year’s Sight Tech Global will focus on sight description heavily. The tricky question that will be asked at this year’s event is: “How do highly advanced, AI-based technologies actually become compelling, affordable products that folks who are blind or visually impaired readily adopt?”
