Google Impact Challenge – Disabilities Platform

Desktop/mobile platform

The Google Impact Challenge – Disabilities is an ongoing online platform to showcase the various efforts Google is undertaking to make the world a better place for people with disabilities. Created in 9 languages and WCAG 2.0 AA compliant, it catalogues a number of initiatives while also allowing people to get involved and contribute in a variety of ways.

An interactive touch screen (also WCAG 2.0 AA compliant)  was also created for display at the L.A. Special Olympics 2015. It facilitated user submissions (on initiative related topics) via Android tablets.
