Dr. Hessa gave a speech at the Assistive Technology for the Visually Impaired forum held at Doha, Qatar on 3rd December 2008. She said that technology has enabled us to be connected as never before to our colleagues, family and friends, however, the technology that makes that communication possible is not accessible to the disabled, making the benefits of ICT unequally shared. She spoke of Qatar’s efforts to broaden access and connectivity to the disabled in order to build a more just society.
