Tokyo Podcast 43: Always Reading Caravan

Anthony Joh is pleased to welcome to Tokyo Podcast Yoshimi Horiuchi who runs a non-profit organization called Always Reading Caravan that provides mobile library services to families in the rural areas of Thailand. The program aims to provide story books to children with or without disabilities who otherwise would not have access to these type of books.

Yoshimi herself has been blind since she was a child and she talks about the difficulties she faces in living and working in both Bangkok and Tokyo. She is a huge fan of the iPhone and other technologies that make it easier for her to communicate and offers tips to web developers on how they can make their websites more accessible to people using screen readers.
