The session focused on examining issues relating to digital assistive technology. Panelists  largely represented those with a lived experience of using digital assistive products or with experience in harmonizing digital disability policy. Each panel member discussed key issues surrounding these areas of focus and then be asked questions about their recommendations and solutions.
