We live in a diverse world. Naturally, the way we each communicate is also diverse. All of us have our own way of thinking, understanding and expressing ourselves. For some, how they communicate isn’t through personal choice, but a result of personal needs. Inclusive communication recognises this. For every organisation, it should be part of their DNA. At Texthelp, it’s at the heart of our whole organisation. In fact, it’s our core purpose. I’ll explain why.
As I look ahead, I hope that assistive technology will be more widely appreciated and accepted as a work aid. I hope that more organisations will embrace inclusive communication, and realise that technology can help them on their way.
At Texthelp, we’ve recently released a roadmap to help us continue making a positive impact on accessibility and inclusion. We’ve got very ambitious goals ahead as we try to reach more people and make an impact that lasts forever. By 2030, we want to have advanced the literacy and understanding of one billion people. I know that we can do it too. As my father taught me, we must work hard for what we want to achieve and never ever give up.
I hope I’ve been able to inspire you in some way, and wish you luck on your journey as an inclusive organisation. Remember that by making the world easier for people with disabilities, you make it easier for everyone.
