the problem
Nature and Context

Millions of Americans suffer from speech and movement disorders that make it hard for them to communicate, often isolating them from public matters. Society has a long way to go before becoming fully inclusive to the differently abled, but technology already has so many solutions, we just need to implement them more effectively.
