The Vision-Aid team was invited by the Boston Accessibility RoundTable to present at its meetup in Cambridge. It was an excellent meeting where the Vision-Aid team met some interesting and inspiring people, all doing wonderfully innovative things to make our world more accessible to people with disabilities.
We presented the work Vision-Aid is doing , including the recent experiences with teaching programming to the visually impaired. We also presented Vision-Aid’s use of MOOC’s like edX to help our students reach their highest potential. Also participating were thought leaders from the accessibility community, edX and the state of MA. We had a lively and productive discussion about how to work together in our respective endeavors to enable the visually impaired to find independence and dignity.
