Building on Google's low cost Cardboard headsets, as well as big ticket names such as Oculus Rift and Microsoft's Hololens, Virtual Reality (VR) has quickly moved from geeky buzzword to mainstream technology. It is already widely used by estate agents, holiday companies and many other commercial applications - but what can it do for disabled people?
- Free Webinar: Virtual Reality, Disability and Inclusive Design

Senior Accessibility Consultant at AbilityNet, Raphael Clegg-Vinell, offers an introduction to VR and looks at some of the ways it could transform the lives of people with disabilities. It's already being used by people with visual impairments, strokes and dementia and could have life-changing possibilities for people with many other disabilities.
The webinar will be of interest to anyone with an interest in how technology can help people with disabilities, as well as anyone developing VR applications. It does not require any existing knowledge of VR and it will include an opportunity to ask questions.
