Opening for the first time out of the US, and based in London, Google’s Accessibility Centre is an innovative institution dedicated to research and product development in technology for people with disability. Built in collaboration with disability charities and organisations such as the Royal National Institute of Blind People, the Royal National Institute for Deaf People and the charity Everyone Can.
The Centre includes both learning spaces and interactive zones for visitors, as well as a space for research and development for developers, and is part of Google’s ongoing dedication to ensure the accessibility of technology to all. The collaboration with charities specific to disability ensures that any further developments will have the insight of those with lived experience of disability.
The UK Minister of State for Disabled People, Health and Work, Tom Pursglove sees this as an important step towards showing the potential of technology making society more inclusive to all.
