WAY FOR­WARD

Tehelka - - ASSAM -

KAPOOR IS WORK­ING on mak­ing a host of as­sis­tive tech­nolo­gies from around the world more ac­ces­si­ble and af­ford­able. “We of­fer about 80-100 as­sis­tive prod­ucts to­day that help the dis­abled,” she says, “and we also work to bring price-points down. For in­stance, we of­fer a screen reader for the vi­su­al­ly­im­paired — a com­pet­i­tive prod­uct was avail­able at 60,000, while we have been able to ne­go­ti­ate to bring it in at 24,000. That’s a mas­sive dif­fer­ence.” Kapoor also founded and or­gan­ises Techshare In­dia, the coun­try’s first ever plat­form for shar­ing and dis­play­ing as­sis­tive tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies from around the world.
