The life of the blind in a smart city
Based on a World Health Organization report, 38 million people in the world are blind. Furthermore, 110 million have low vision and are at great risk of becoming blind.
Besides the challenges posed by the physical world, they also have to learn how to live in the digital world. It is truly amazing how much technology has progressed in recent years. There's still room for improvement, but so many things are becoming possible these days. Computers definitely have changed the lives of us all, but the most significant changes have been for the lives of blind people. So, how does it feel to use smart technology as a blind person?
Most people probably are not aware of the fact that since 2006, all Mac computers have been developed with a standard screen reader built into them. By simply giving a couple of commands to the computer, you can turn that feature on and a blind person can begin to use it. Technological innovation has brought some positive and incredibly good changes for the blind.
