Our Mission

Slideteller was born out of a powerful vision: to empower individuals with visual impairments and grant them seamless access to the captivating world of storytelling. Crafted exclusively for Miyo’s exceptional show, “How to be Japanese,” our innovative technology effortlessly enables individuals with visual impairments to listen to audio descriptions of her slides.

We believe in a world where every individual, regardless of their abilities, can experience the magic of storytelling. Slideteller is our way of breaking down barriers and ensuring that the joy and inspiration of Miyo’s performance reach every soul. Through our ground-breaking product, we are reshaping the landscape of inclusivity, showing the world that disabilities need not limit the boundless potential of human imagination. Join us on this transformative journey and let Slideteller become the gateway to a world where visual impairments become mere stepping stones towards a brighter future.
