A group of students at IBM have adopted our challenge to create a Conversational Internet – where you can browse the internet by just using your voice as part of a innovation summer camp.
They have developed a prototype which has just been unveiled. This will enable people who can’t see the screen or keyboard to browse naturally “hands free, eyes free”.

We aim to make touchscreen devices available to those who need them at the lowest price.
The cost of accessing new technology can be very high, given that many blind people aren’t able to work and don’t have strong credit histories. Over two thirds of blind people are living in poverty, so owning a touch screen device is often out of reach.
