4Blind at 1st Deafblind International Africa Conference18 May 2022
On the second day of the 1st Deafblind International Africa Conference, we presented our paper "Meeting the problem of an affordability of technical means for communication and access to information".
Head of Research Team Elisaveta Ardashova made a presentation on behalf of 4Blind. She emphasized a number of problems that deaf-blind people face today in communication, socialization, everyday life, and described a technical solution designed to meet and mitigate these problems — the HaptiBraille Communicator. Also Elisaveta demonstrated the results of variouss testing and pilot programs demonstrating the effectiveness of the communicator.
Guests attended the presentation session in person and also people joined the session virtually. At the end of our presentation, many listeners were involved in the discussion, asked questions, share their comments and recommendations on the implementation of the solution.
