Disability Research Project - Voice Technology
Accessibility is increasingly being used as a selling point for many technology based products. Do you use voice technology, like Alexa to help you out? Could you see a future where voice technology makes being online easier? Is voice technology inaccessible for you?
SEO Jo Blogs and Disabled Times are running the research project together to identify if voice technology helps disabled people, or if it has the potential to. If voice technology currently lacks, then we want to do something about it!
