Thanks, but I have to give credit to a former colleague for pulling that from the talk. I was sent this and forwarded it on anonymously.

Love the "interesting description of disability" and the exact truth behind the reality that we are temporarily abled. Thank you for sharing.

Talks about web accessibility (e.g. online shopping, social media) and inclusive entertainment for hearing and vision impaired (e.g. Netflix, television network).

Interesting description of disability: "Remember that we are all not just abled or disabled. We are all just temporarily abled. Aging is inevitable, life is inevitable, life is surprising. Disability or blindness can affect our parents, grandparents, children, best friends, and ourselves. So when that time comes, don't you want this world to be ready and designed for you?"
