Google's accessibility team is led by a blind woman
June 19, 2016
Google's central accessibilty team of test engineers is headed by India born Jyotsna Kaki, 33, who happens to be blind.
Kaki's team tests Google products using screen readers meant for individuals with visual impairment and other disabilities. They also train other Google employees to conduct accessibility testing.
Kaki lost her vision when she was a child due to a brain tumor. That did not come in her way and she set high academic standards for herself. She learned braille and trained on using accessibility technology, such as screen readers, that allow visually impaired people to use computers.
