NASSCOM Foundation, the social development arm of NASSCOM focuses on Tech4Good to impact lives. The Foundation’s ‘Disability Initiative’ promotes employment of persons with disabilities, accessibility and access to assistive technology and tools to the segment.

Most of the producers of software products, applications and websites focus on the characteristics of the "average" user. To ensure access to all potential users, it is important that  access barriers to people with disabilities are avoided by developing the software/ mobile apps / websites that can be used by people with a wide range of abilities and disabilities.  Such accessible products are also beneficial for aged and mobile device users.  Organizations with accessible websites benefit from search engine optimization (SEO), increased consumer loyalty, reduced legal risk (in some countries) and demonstration of corporate social responsibility (CSR).

The session is designed to create awareness about ‘Digital Accessibility’ and discuss the business case for accessible software, apps and website, while demonstrating the business benefit (social, technical, and financial) and the expected returns in doing so. Come and listen to leading product companies like Intuit, BarrierBreak Technologies talk about their thoughts and strategies behind making their products accessible.

Join us in the Round Table that aims to Promote Accessible Products- bit by bit…
