UK non-profit Scope makes emojis more inclusive
July 21, 2016
Emojis have become a popular way to describe what someone is feeling or doing. However, there aren't enough emojis for the nearly one billion people with disabilities in the world to describe what they are feeling.
There is just one, a wheelchair user sign, to represent the different types of disabilities that exist.
To make emojis more inclusive, Scope, a UK.-based nonprofit that promotes inclusion for people with disabilities, has released 18 emojis featuring people with disabilities.
Of the 18 emojis Scope has released, 10 are Paralympics-related. The others feature a variety of different experiences including people using sign language, a guide dog and a dancing woman with a prosthetic leg.However, these are not available as part of the standard emoji keyboard.
