Josh Miele is a blind scientist, designer, and educator with decades of active involvement in the world of technology, accessibility, and disability.  

Josh: “My work in information accessibility has impacted technologies including screen readers, auditory displays, audio/tactile maps and graphics, way finding, braille input, video description, and STEM education. The accessibility solutions I find most attractive are characterized by the creative use of low-cost, off-the-shelf technologies to address significant challenges in information accessibility.”
