Benefits of tech not reaching disabled people, says expert


MYSURU: T V Ananthapadmanabha, CEO of Voice and Speech Systems (Bengaluru), on Saturday said that the benefits of present-day technology are not reaching differently abled due to lack of awareness and lack of indigenous technology.

Inaugurating a meeting on IEEE special interest group on communication disabilities, he said that the country, with a sizeable population of differently abled people, needs a focussed team to work in this area. “This inter-disciplinary meet will be a starter for such a task,” he added.
