Watch, read or listen to a Sparring Partners videocast on how wireless technologies can help us bridge the digital divide that affects people with disabilities, with Chris Lewis, Lewis Insights, Chris Nicoll, Nicoll Associates, and Monica Paolini, Senza Fili.

Topics we addressed:

  • How can we use inclusive design to improve access to wireless services for people with disabilities?
  • Can the smartphone strengthen social cohesion?
  • What role does 5G play in deploying applications that help people with disabilities?
  • What are the most promising areas? Mental health, visual or hearing impairment, medical treatment, and assistance?
  • What concrete benefits can people with disabilities gain from wireless technologies?
  • Why is a more inclusive approach beneficial for everyone?
