Encounters with barriers to built environments, education, employment, entertainment, and healthcare in virtual reality (VR) can shape our understanding of issues faced by diverse demographics in the real world. In this presentation, Mark Bookman discusses how he uses VR in his classes at the University of Tokyo to help raise awareness about otherwise invisible obstacles for disabled individuals.

The session will be webcast live via a partnership with the Internet Society New York Chapter Accessibility SIG (A11ySIG).
