The world is moving at a fast pace, but is it moving fast for everyone? There is a vast majority of the population who belong to "people with special needs", do we care about them too.
There is no doubt that we have created global online platforms but how many of these are inclusive? Do we really think about them when we design or develop online platforms? Inclusive education should not be limited to chapters of school textbooks only. We need to apply it in the real life too.
We all talk about equality, but seldom we hear someone taking a stand for these people. Do they don't deserve to enjoy the opportunities which technology has to offer?
People are not ready to bear any extra cost of technological modifications which can be done to include the special needs segment of our society.
. How many online platforms do we personally know where they can signup?
. How many features do we see in the social media platforms which are specifically for them?
It seems the majority drives our technological innovations.
We need to remind the ones who are spearheading the technological innovations that it is not important to go far but to go together.
Platforms are needed where everyone gets a chance to learn and explore the world.
P.S Hope it can reach the developers.
