Rapid Response Project
Tajo proposes to encourage the establishment of more inclusive and multi-sensory digital dating platforms, particularly for those who are more reliant on the use of non-visual senses, such as blind and partially sighted people and those with varying visual abilities due to age, and for those who come from oral cultures and people with lower levels of literacy.
