According to Tencent's "2018 Visually Impaired Internet Users' Mobile Information Behavior Insight Report" released in early 2018, China currently has more than 17 million visually impaired people, and 75% of visually impaired users are post-80s and 90s.

In terms of online habits, 95% of visually impaired users use mobile phones to access the Internet; nearly 90% of visually impaired users choose mobile phone brands Huawei, iPhone and Xiaomi. The report also shows that visually impaired users have higher demand for knowledge content, and inconvenient operation is the main problem encountered in mobile information reading.

Currently, most smartphones are equipped with "Blind Mode". Such as "VoiceOver" based on iOS system, or "TalkBack" based on Android system. Both can be read aloud by voice, making it easier and more convenient for visually impaired people to use their smartphones.

Today, UNESCO introduced Xiaomi’s efforts in information accessibility construction and practiced the pleasure of making everyone enjoy technology.

UNESCO said that technology can be a helper for self-reliance and self-reliance for people with disabilities. Open the gap. “Giving people with disabilities, ensuring tolerance and equality”, and thanking all those who have worked hard for it.

In fact, as early as 2013, MIUI worked with visually impaired users to improve the development process. Now, accessibility has become the factory standard for Xiaomi mobile phones. Xiaomi said that it is willing to share development experience free of charge, and work together with global technology companies to fully realize information accessibility in smart phones and Internet applications, and let technology benefit everyone.
