Accessibility Research in the Global South
Over 80% of the 1 billion people with disabilities in the world live in the Global South, yet, most of the research at the intersection of disability and technology published across HCI venues is based in the Global North. With limited published research, and a large range of socio-cultural, practical and environmental differences across the Global South, HCI researchers and practitioners can encounter unexpected challenges when planning and conducting accessibility studies.
Here, we aim to map the accessibility research conducted in the Global South. Please fill in details of research projects you have conducted in the global south to add yourself to this map.
This map came out of a panel discussion at the X Latin American Conference on Human Computer Interaction (CLIHC 22).
