* iSEE Mobile Apps (iSEE) is a team comprising social workers, programmers, teachers, university students and people with disabilities.  It aims to break barriers through information technology and to provide services and opportunities to the disabled to promote their equal participation.  With the help of mobile technology, people with disabilities are believed to be able to overcome their physical restriction when connecting with the society, thus reinstate a normal life.  As such, iSEE has developed a mobile app for the visually impaired.  This app has simple layout design and is compatible with smartphone screen readers.  It also supports recognition of colors, Chinese and English texts, and common objects.

Besides, iSEE provides one-stop consultation service on web accessibility to its clients, which includes testing and solutions, development, as well as promotion and training.  Currently, iSEE is providing web accessibility consultation to the HKSAR Government, NGOs and elderly centres, and it will extend its services to the private enterprise sector in the long run.

** Seats are available on a first-come-first-served basis.  No registration is required for the S.I. Leadership Award's participants who have been pre-enrolled to this event.  Attendance in this event will not be counted as participation in designated training.
