How AI can Unlock STEM Content for Students with Disabilities

Education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math is essential, but for too many students with disabilities, there are no accessible materials available. This Global Accessibility Awareness Day, Benetech is showcasing AI to transform STEM content into accessible formats for students with disabilities.

Towards Accessible Online Content for All: Global Accessibility Awareness Day 2014

Today, May 15 is Global Accessibility Awareness Day—a day intended to get people talking, thinking, and learning about digital accessibility for people with disabilities. This is an opportunity to share what Benetech’s DIAGRAM Center is doing to ensure that digital content is accessible to all. The DIAGRAM Center is working at the frontier of accessible publishing and online content by making it easier, faster, and cheaper to create and use accessible digital images. One of the many emerging technologies we are researching is 3D printing for accessible educational materials.
