Accessibility recommendations :

The disabled / differently- abled population in India are at a big loss as public facilities like playgrounds, cinema halls, government buildings, train stations, washrooms, footpaths etc. are not designed keeping in mind wheelchair accessibility. Similarly these public buildings are not equipped to help the hearing impaired and visually impaired get around as independently as possible.

Many a time, certain home adaptations or modifications need to be implemented to support or enhance the functioning of the patient eg. Grab bars and anti-slip flooring in the bathroom, a workdesk under which the wheelchair is able to slide in and a bed with bedrails installed to improve patient’s bed mobility and transfers.

We at TheraCure, will assist with practical solutions with regards to public and residential space designing whether it’s a new upcoming space or an existing one.

Accessible indicates that, someone with a Disabilities has the same Potential as a person with no disabilities to obtain the same knowledge, participate in the same activities, and experience the same facilities in a similarly effective and equally integrated manner with essentially similar ease of use. A person with a disability should be able to acquire knowledge in the same way equitably, and individually as an individual who does not have a disability. Accessible includes Sites, classroom technology, learning management systems, multimedia, and documentation etc.

What exactly is accessible technology mean?

Accessible Technology is technology that has been created to be accessible to all users. Electronic papers, websites, software, hardware, videos, music, and other technologies are all included. People that interact with technology come from a wide range of backgrounds. They have a wide range of properties, and we can't assume they all utilise a typical monitor for output or a keyboard and mouse for input. Assume the following users:

  • The majority of blind people utilize either audio or tactile output (devices called screen readers that interpret online material using synthetic voice) (a refreshable Braille device).
  • People with cognitive, difficulties including dyslexia, May also benefit from audible output.
  • Individuals with limited eyesight can use screen magnification tools to zoom onto a specific area of the visual screen.
  • Many individuals with poor vision can increase the text on webpages by utilizing normal browsing functionalities like Ctrl + in Windows or Command + in Mac OS X.
  • Those with fine motor impairments might be unable to operate a mouse and may rather depend on keyboard instructions or assistive technologies like voice recognition, head pointer, mouth sticks, or eye-gaze surveillance devices.
  • Individuals who are deaf or poor of hearing cannot access auditory content; thus, video should be subtitled and audio must be translated.
  • People may be utilizing mobile devices such as phones, tablets, or other devices, which indicates they are engaging with their devices and getting material through a variety of screen size and gestures or other interfaces.
