Prior to the Swedish elections, we have reviewed the websites of the political parties in the Swedish parliament, regarding accessibility. Unfortunately, they have not gotten any better since last election, rather the opposite.

Virtual Reality for increased knowledge

Hidden disabilities are often more difficult to understand and handle for the outside world, than physical impairments. Funka has received funding from Vinnova, Sweden’s innovation agency, to work on Virtual Reality experiences based on real stories from people with different disabilities. The aim is to develop training material that can contribute to an inclusive working life.
