New York Times Features Web Accessibility and the Advances of Some Google Engineers

Today, the New York Times ran a really cool feature story about two Google engineers T.V. Raman and Charles Chen.  They’ve been developing all kinds of different software which helps users with disabilities access the Web and technology just like someone without the disability.  It’s a good story… definitely worth a read.

  1. Thanks, for pointing out this great article.

    I met Charles Chen at SXSWi in 2007 at the Knowbility booth. He is a very bright young man. He created the Firefox plug-in Fire Vox (free screen reader). I use this tools to check web pages when need be with out having to purchase JAWS.
