Technology continues to open doors for individuals with disabilities. Siteimprove's Keith Bundy taught the US office about a revolutionary new piece of technology that uses augmented reality and trained agents to help people who are blind independently accomplish tasks which typically require a sighted assistant. With Aira, people who are blind are able to navigate airports, stores, and shopping centers, as well as read mail, use touch-screen vending machines, find friends, and much more. In fact, the potential of Aira is limited only by the imagination of the person who is blind.

Happy International Women’s Day!
On average, only 29% of employees in tech companies are female, which is far from reflecting society as a whole and far from ideal. At Siteimprove we would like... to use this International Women's Day to encourage our own industry to focus on improving diversity and equality in IT and tech.
At Siteimprove, 197 talented women make up approximately 40% of our company worldwide, which is better than average, but also shows that there's room for improvement. We're determined to improve as we have first-hand experience with the benefits that comes with having a diverse workforce.
We’d like to extend a well-deserved shout-out to Women in Tech (http://womenintech.dk/) - together we're working to inspire women to pursue a career in tech and improve diversity in the industry.
