||Supportive technology for people with impairment is often regarded as purely technical issues or challenges: Is it possible to do or not? Is it possible to make a ramp that allows for the descent with a wheel chair. Many times accessibility becomes a question of "adding functionality". The question presented in this seminar, is whether accessibility really has to be an addition, or whether this can be a natural aspect of the design of environments and tools.
The presentation will take a few concrete examples as a starting point, and I will also discuss the issue of stigmatization as one aspect of supportive tools.
The seminar is non-technical, and does not require any deeper knowledge about the area.
