Despite all the problems in our world, we are very fortunate in that technology is continually developing and is having a very positive impact on peoples’ lives. So, I thought I’d share with you a couple of the exciting disability related technology stories that have been making headlines in the news recently.
I’ve been volunteering for The Aidis Trust since early June 2016, with my first blog post having been published on 28 June 2016 , a year ago. So now, seeing as it’s been just over a year since my first post was published, I thought I’d write a blog about how I’ve found the experience of volunteering for The Aidis Trust so far, what I do for the blog and a bit about how my creative process works.
You may recall that last year we started a blog series called Disabled Voices Online, where we found out about how people with different disabilities found the experience of creating online content and having an online platform.
As you may know, the Aidis Trust has been running a project called Everyone Can Game, which aims to help disabled people to become involved in gaming. As a part of which, there have been gaming days to get disabled children playing games in an accessible way. Well, I thought it might be a good opportunity to catch up on how things are going as well as talk all things gaming with one of the project’s volunteers.
May is a very busy month where awareness weeks are concerned. This week 15 to 21 May 2017 is deaf awareness week. So this post is all about deaf awareness.
