Joey van der Bie is committed to digital accessibility for people with visual impairments. To this end, he researches how internet connected devices can use multimodal communication (tactile, audio and visual) to better communicate with people with visual impairments. Wearables and smartphones are the tools that make communication possible both in the living room and while navigating in the city.
