Meet Kai: 12 years old from Perth Australia, Kai has battled with sensory and auditory overload for most of his life. He tried Nuheara’s IQbuds back in 2016 which made a life-changing difference at school and at home.
As a visually impaired woman, I use assistive technology everyday to make my working environment accessible and productive. I feel grateful to work on the Chromebook team, which values my perspective as someone with a disability. Seeking and embracing a diverse set of perspectives is the only true way to build for everyone.
I’m generally a very open person and have never been afraid to share personal details about events in my life. I went through a fairly serious disease a couple of years back and one of the agents used in the treatment is notorious for damaging hearing – especially in the upper-frequency ranges. Going into the treatment though, I was hopeful I would be one of the lucky ones that wouldn’t suffer this particular side effect. I had a baseline hearing test done just before treatments started.
