From 14-15 August 2013, the M-Enabling Australasia 2013 Conference and Showcase will take place in Sydney. This first Australasian edition of the M-Enabling initiative follows events in Washington D.C., San Francisco and Milan and looks at mobile technology as potential game changer for people with disability and senior citizens.
The M-Enabling initiative wants to encourage access and inclusion through usable, accessible and affordable mobile equipment and services - the perfect stage to present the new GARI.
On Thursday, Michael Milligan, Secretary General of the MMF, will showcase the new GARI website in the session "Mobile accessibility: The manufacturers’ perspective" (11:30-12:45) and explain about the new sections of the database that in this version also includes information on accessible tablets and apps.
We hope to give people a first feel for the new site and motivate them to use GARI as soon as it is officially launched. We also hope to get honest feedback and to understand what people need when they come to GARI.
If you are in Sydney next week, please come and talk to Michael, have a look at the new site and let us know what you think!
And of course, do let us know which accessibility apps you like and use and want to see in GARI's brand new app section!
