Social challenge 4
Recent news is hardly available to illiterates, blind people or foreigners. Print formats such as newspapers are not accessible or only through expensive readers. Whoever is visually impaired often pays more by doing so. An exclusion from social participation – although in any case solitary – is a consequence. The accessibility, which is actually targeted by the Federal Law on Part-Time Law, is hardly given in practice.

Vision as a solution 4
An ITK solution available on all systems Android, iOS and Windows could help – free of charge and easily available. Full accessibility should be ensured by so-called simple design and the use of auxiliary technologies. A simple operation via the keyboard and a message consumption by pre-reading mode would be more than useful. This solution should be available in several languages ​​- perhaps through automated translation. This would even create the opportunity to create standards in IT solutions.

Stay tuned …
