Mohamed Jemni    

Mohamed Jemni develops intuitive tools to make the web more accessible for people with disabilities.

In his lab at the University of Tunis, Mohamed Jemni is building e-learning environments for students with disabilities, and improving accessibility for the deaf community by the use of information and community technology (ICT) and sign language -- with tools like the app MMS Sign, which makes mobile phones accessible for deaf people, and the new WebSign, which unlocks web data using an avatar who speaks sign language. (Watch his TED Talk about WebSign.)

Jemni and his lab won the UNESCO Prize in 2008 for their e-learning curriculum for visually impaired people, and the World Summit Award (WSA) Mobile 2010 in the field of social inclusion. He is a member of the steering committee of G3ICT United Nations, the Global Initiative for Inclusive Information and Communication Technologies, and the president of the Tunisian Association of e-accessibility.
