Many of us look to technology to add to our regular faculties — make us better, faster, stronger, and more productive. But there’s another promise of new technology for millions of people around the world: accessibility.

Larry Goldberg, director of WGBH’s National Center for Accessible Media, joins Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson to discuss new ways tech is helping people with disabilities. Click on the audio player above to hear more.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.

We’re here for you.
