iOn the Future: Making Technology More Accessible

Jacob Wobbrock is interested in creating accessibility tools to make it easier for people with disabilities to use a computer. Solutions like the Angle Mouse, a software program that improves the efficiency and ease of mouse pointing, and the Pointing Magnifier make a big difference for people with motor impairments.

This segment is part of a 60-minute UWTV-produced documentary film about the UW Information School and its work, which aims to draw attention to the school's faculty and the social impact of their research.
