Jim & Isabelle’s Story

Over 48 hours in January of 2017, inventors, creators, hackers, change makers, and persons with disabilities came together in Vancouver to build open source assistive technologies at the Access Makeathon. There were many successes that came out of the makeathon, and here is one of them. This is Jim & Isabelle’s story.

Makers Making Change (new window) connects makers to people with disabilities who need assistive technologies. We’re the first organization in Canada to revolutionize how people collaborate on assistive technology projects. Our teams of makers and people with disabilities join forces to reinvent what’s possible for accessible open-source solutions.
