The mayor of Benidorm, Toni Pérez, participated this Thursday in the activities that have been carried out in the city within the Once Social Group Week, an event that aims to publicize the activities carried out by this organization and raise awareness about the inclusion of people who are blind or have visual disabilities.

Together with the regional director of ONCE in Benidorm, Vicente Vázquez, and other members of the Social Group, the mayor has been able to learn about some everyday objects that make life easier for people with vision problems, especially material related to typhlotechnology. , which these weeks of dissemination and awareness are dedicated to this year. Among them, are computers adapted for blind and deafblind people, mobile phones or AI applications; in addition to children's books and stories in Braille, board games or maps that are used to teach children with vision loss.

Likewise, Toni Pérez has participated in another of the activities, such as the mobility circuit enabled by ONCE so that people without any vision problems can experience in first person, thanks to a mask and a cane, what an urban journey is like for someone who does not see.

After completing this circuit, Toni Pérez stated that "many advances are being made in technology, but at the same time there must be a specific technology so that the digital divide that technological advance can generate does not have a special impact on blind people." The first mayor has also said that activities like these allow us to “know what the dangers, the risks, of normality and day-to-day life on the street are and of that comfort that we people who have a greater or lesser vision have in our time. of leisure, shopping or circulation, to also realize the difficulty of doing the same thing 'blindly'”, after which he called to “empathize, to put ourselves in the shoes of other people” with different abilities to “make a better and friendlier city for everyone.”
