Accessibility for People with Blindness, Visual Impairment or Mobility Disability
Israeli company and app: Step-Hear is an audio-guide wayfinding system for blind and visually impaired people. It works indoors, outdoors, and on public transportation. It assists people with mobility disabilities to remove some obstacles in their daily activities.The system combines a free application (or personal wrist-activator) that automatically activates Step-Hear’s unique audio signs.If you know of any entities that could supply or distribute Step-Hear in Australia or New Zealand, we would love to learn about them and connect them with Step-Hear in Israel.You can get an idea about the system in the short video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0J2O6dpR_uo.

Technology for 1.2 Billion Indians
India is producing a blue-print for nation building in the digital age with India Stack. India Stack is described by some as the biggest IT project ever achieved by any government and the largest API on earth.All components of India Stack have been built using a first-principles approach leveraging "commodity technology, modest investment, and a commitment to solving for economic primitives.""Just like the fictional trio from the Kibera slum, 1.3 billion Indians are currently enjoying access to fundamental digital services that are far ahead of their time.”It's a story that needs to be told.https://www.indiastack.org/about/
