NAB Presents Interactive Meeting with a Global Leader in Accessibility

NAB Delhi is organizing an Interactive meeting with a global leader in accessibility.

Tom Babinszki, born totally blind since his birth in Hungary, has been involved with accessibility for the last 20 years. During high school, he worked on a low cost Braille embosser and created a talking dictionary to help blind students learn languages. In the 1990's, he was active in making higher education accessible to people with disabilities in Hungary. In 2001, when Section 508 came into effect, he started helping government agencies, corporations and non-profit agencies to make their information accessible.

Tom was also active in international initiatives, in 2008 he trained the first blind accessibility consultants in South-East Asia. He has also been an advocate of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. From 2010, Tom built a center for entrepreneurship for blind and visually impaired people and helped identifying business opportunities. In the first three years, the center had served over 500 students.

Tom joined IBM in 2013 as an accessibility advisor. Currently he is involved with mobile accessibility, government compliance and accessibility education. Tom travels around IBM - often with his guide dog, Baldwin, to provide free accessibility education.
