We live in a world dominated by the printed word, images and video. The information we read, share and use to learn is central to our everyday lives—We get our news or follow important issues using newspapers and websites. We study for exams or complete homework using textbooks and online libraries. We share what we read and contribute our experiences through social media, text messages and online forums.
Yet, there are millions of people that remain locked out of living fully in this kind of world. Why? Whether it’s because of economic issues, political or social norms or disabilities that prevent them from using most standard formats, some people simply lack the access they need to information that is critical to their lives.
