EMPOWERING THE BLIND
PANTAI Hospital Ampang will be organising its first Health Is Wealth Carnival on May 7, 2017 at 8am - 6pm at Padang Kelab Belia, Kampung Baru
The carnival includes complimentary clinic sessions by specialists, free health screenings and activities such as tai chi, coloring contests, carnival games and
more. THE Uber app partners with the National Council For The Blind, Malaysia (NCBM) to help empower blind riders with the choice to travel independently, with just a touch of a button.
Through this partnership, Uber provides free rides to NCBM members and organises special training sessions for driver-partners on how better to serve blind riders. Uber also works with NCBM to educate blind riders on how easy it is to use the Uber app.
The app has features such as integration with smartphone accessibility options for the blind.
Whether it is VoiceOver iOS, TalkBack on Android, or even other wireless braille display compatibility, the app makes it easier for riders who are blind.
