Accessible Technology at CES 2018

 T 

echnology is improving lives across the globe,
and the newest innovations that enable people
of all ages and abilities to live independently
will be on display at CES 2018. With more than
7,000 media expected, the cutting edge technologies
of tomorrow will dominate the news outlets. The CTA
Foundation is focused on telling the stories behind how
technology is bettering our world, particularly for the
growing aging demographic and people with disabilities.

Self-driving cars
such as the Google
X provide driving
options for the
legally blind.

The CTA Foundation is proud to host a number of events at CES
showcasing the power of technology working for people of all abilities.
This includes two panels:
The first will show the
many benefits of self-driving
vehicles for both the aging
and disability communities.

The second will focus on how smart
home technologies are enabling
greater independence for people
regardless of age or ability.

In conjunction with CTA's Government and
Legal Affairs team, the CTA Foundation will host
the Accessible Leaders CES Tour. This tour connects the top disability advocates with the industry
to help facilitate the dialogue necessary to continue
developing accessible technologies. These advancements are vital in helping seniors and those with
disabilities live more independently.
For the third consecutive year, the Accessibility
Marketplace will be in the Tech West Sands
Expo. And in Eureka Park we will feature our five
startup accessibility winners. Across the show,
a number of initiatives by both CTA and the CTA
Foundation will identify companies exhibiting
accessible technology. We want to hear from
you if your company or someone you know is
exhibiting a technology helping people of all
abilities and ages to live more independently.
With one in five individuals reporting a disability
and the number of individuals 65 and older set
to double by 2060, we are in the midst of a massive
demographic shift. Technology is a crucial piece
that will help individuals of all abilities live more
independently. The CTA Foundation is proud
to work with and support organizations serving
seniors and those with disabilities through the
power of technology.

THE CTA FOUNDATION, a public, national
foundation affiliated with CTA, was launched
in 2012 with the mission to link seniors and
people with disabilities with technologies to
enhance their lives. The foundation strategically supports programs that affect these
communities and facilitates dialog between
industry, consumers, government, advocacy
groups and other key stakeholders. For more
