On Global Accessibility Awareness Day, Saksham launched its survey, ‘Status and opportunities for promoting use of Assistive technologies and content for persons with disabilities in India’, as part of its research project with Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry.

The research project aims to understand how and what tools, technologies and content persons with disabilities in India use and how these factors can help them in education, employment and independent living.

It also aims to understand how participants use technology and content to better their lives, and what needs to be done by Schools, training institutes, employers, or others to better serve their needs.

We invite all persons with visual disabilities, especially those in school, college, and employment, to fill the survey. The published link to the survey is attached below and will be available for the next 3 months. Please feel free to share in your network and spread the word! https://forms.gle/hdD5XCH6bw4msbzn8
