Shulou( Report--

December 3, which just passed, is the annual International Day of Persons with Disabilities, an important event initiated and promoted by the United Nations, which aims to deepen public awareness of disability issues and mobilize all sectors of society to jointly safeguard the dignity, rights and happiness of persons with disabilities.

According to the estimates of the World Health Organization, there are about 1 billion disabled people in the world. In China, there are 1700 visually impaired, 2300 hearing impaired and 70 million dyslexic people. Due to various obstacles, these people are often unable to enjoy all kinds of rights as equally as normal people-take the most common use of smartphones as an example, technological advances have brought about a leap in the smartphone experience, making our lives very convenient. A little finger takeout can be delivered to us, and a mobile phone can be picked up to make a gorgeous blockbuster. However, when we enjoy the extreme convenience of science and technology, these things are very simple in our eyes, but for those people with disabilities who are neglected, it is difficult to move in an "isolated" world.

Scientific and technological innovation promotes the progress of society, but it is not only the unshirkable responsibility of science and technology giants, but also their social responsibility to benefit everyone equally. This is also the best interpretation of the nature of science and technology-serving and benefiting others.

For example, Huawei has achieved what it is today not only because of its outstanding performance in technological innovation, but also because of its determination and action to benefit everyone.

For a long time, Huawei has always adhered to the purpose of "technology, no one is left behind", through technical means to help people with obstacles to solve the difficulties in life. In the 2022-2023 Huawei Terminal Sustainability report, Huawei shared several typical cases of "information accessibility".

He Yajun is a blind runner. In our traditional understanding, it is difficult for blind people to participate in all kinds of sports, especially running, because of their visual impairment. But with the help of volunteers, the visually impaired group can also run happily through a traction rope.

When faced with a running invitation from volunteers, he Yajun will also reply through the voice input method: OK, see you at 07:00 tomorrow morning.

Now running has become a way of life for he Yajun. He has not only been able to run, but he has even participated in more than 70 marathons, with a best result of 3 hours and 14 minutes.

Zhu Yilin is a hearing impaired with congenital severe deafness. with the help of Bluetooth direct connection, a hearing aid in Huawei's mobile phone, Zhu Yilin can transmit the voice of the call clearly to her cochlear implant, coupled with HarmonyOS's Xiaoyi call, and can rewrite text more quickly and accurately. "since I never called before, I actually broke through 500 minutes of talking a month," Zhu Yilin said. With the help of Huawei's barrier-free ability, Zhu Yilin has increased her confidence in every call. It is also Huawei's barrier-free mission to help more people with hearing disabilities realize their dream of making phone calls.

And Cao Shengkang, known by the media as "contemporary Xu Xiake", is a visually impaired traveler who has traveled to 38 countries on five continents with a blind stick, a backpack and a pair of sunglasses. When he climbs to the top of the mountain, he will take photos on Huawei's mobile phone to record the scenery and share it with friends and family. With the cooperation of Huawei's mobile phone and smart glasses, he will be able to achieve more private "screen reading" without disturbing others.

At the 2022 Huawei HDC photo exhibition for visually impaired users, Chen Peng, a completely blind photographer, stunned the photographic lock screens of many attendees. At this moment, there are many visually impaired users across the country who are recording the current scenery through the photo assistant function of Huawei's mobile phone.

From the stories of these people, it is not difficult to see that Huawei HarmonyOS accessibility has realized the dream of many people with disabilities and become an indispensable right-hand man in their life and work.

In fact, Huawei has been making continuous evolution and innovation breakthroughs on the way to the innovation of barrier-free technology.

As early as 2017, Huawei added auxiliary functions such as Talkback on EMUI5.1, and on EMUI 10.0 in 2019, Huawei also brought a new generation of "screen reading". On HarmonyOS 3, released in 2022, features such as image recognition and photo assistance have been upgraded. Visually impaired users can recognize objects and text messages in the environment through mobile phone cameras, and understand the characteristics and position relationships of objects through voice broadcasting, so as to become the "navigator" of their new world. And this year's release of HarmonyOS 4, accessibility is a new upgrade, adding many intelligent auxiliary scenes, such as intelligent question and answer, hearing aids directly connected, Xiaoyi call upgrade and other friendly features and capabilities, such as "smart question and answer" function, users can know whether there are objects to be photographed in the picture to be photographed, their surrounding environment and so on. Visually impaired users have more ways to interact with the world.

These continuous investment accumulation and innovative breakthroughs at the accessibility level have not only benefited the broad masses of handicapped people, but also been recognized by professional evaluation engineers. For example, in Phoenix New Media's annual visually impaired user experience test report, Mate50 Pro with HarmonyOS 3.0 won the top five-star rating of smartphone information accessibility. With its better AI visual recognition ability, Huawei has become the most recommended mobile phone brand for visually impaired users.

The concept of "technology, no one is left behind" is reflected not only in Huawei's research and development of barrier-free technology for people with obstacles, but also in Huawei's services for all user groups, such as the elderly.

With the gradual deterioration of physical function, elderly people often encounter a variety of problems when using smartphones.

To this end, Huawei mobile phones provide technical assistance such as large fonts, large icons, display magnification, bold fonts and so on. In the newly upgraded version 3.0 of "Care for the Elder", the adaptation experience of the enlarged display of the mobile phone interface, the management of the care mode of the application, and the prevention of fraud, harassment and interception are further added to improve the visual experience and safety of the elderly in all aspects.

At the same time, the upgraded brand-new application control center actively helps the elderly to intercept the installation of risk applications, control the operation of risk applications, and isolate the private data of risk applications in a more intuitive and clear way. so that the elderly will no longer download junk software because they do not know how to use various mobile applications and mistouch, resulting in privacy disclosure and fraud.

This "aging service" is not only reflected in mobile phone products, but also offline services. In order to help elderly users easily cope with the problems encountered in daily use, Huawei has carried out a variety of diversified offline teachings. at the same time, the handbook "Mobile phone user Guide for parents" has been developed. 250000 copies of the handbook have been printed from 2022 to 2023 for users to pick up free of charge at offline stores such as the national Huawei customer service center and authorized experience stores.

Finally, in the 2022-2023 Huawei Terminal Sustainable Development report, Huawei focuses on four aspects: information accessibility, education and health, green environmental protection and corporate responsibility. While constantly strengthening scientific and technological innovation, Huawei has always adhered to its social responsibility as a science and technology enterprise.

In terms of education, for the "youth group", Huawei has actively integrated online education resources and built a Huawei education center to provide users with full-scene intelligent learning services and experiences through a platform of high-quality content and professional learning services. At present, Huawei Education Center cooperates with more than 240 quality education partners in China to meet the learning needs of users of all ages.

In terms of health, HUAWEI Research, together with 301 Hospital, China Association for the Promotion of International Exchange of Medical and Health Care, and more than 80 research institutions carry out active health research, covering a wide range of cardiovascular, sleep, respiratory, liver, blood sugar and other health areas, providing consumers with a better way of health management. Huawei also introduced an one-button micro-physical examination and hyperglycemia risk assessment function on its WATCH 4 series of watches released this year, allowing consumers to have a "physical examination" on their wrists, making it possible to manage blood sugar periodically.

In terms of green environmental protection, Huawei has always adhered to the concept of environmental protection and implemented green supply chain management to reduce carbon emissions and waste of resources. For a long time, Huawei has been committed to building faster and smoother systems, further extending the service life of its products and reducing the number of discarded electronic products, so as to maximize the use value of its products. Huawei has also revitalized more than 4 million mobile phones in the past year through the "one-for-one-price battery" service. Huawei has also used 14 kinds of renewable materials to promote the reuse of materials. In 2023, the number of product manual pages decreased by 86% compared with 2019, and carbon emissions were reduced by more than 36000 tons, and so on.

As an enterprise with a high sense of social responsibility, Huawei always adheres to the concept of people-oriented development and pays attention to the implementation of corporate social responsibility.

The progress and development of science and technology should not only serve some people, but should benefit everyone. In this process, Huawei has always been committed to bridging the digital divide through scientific and technological innovation, and striving to ensure that everyone can enjoy the benefits of science and technology.

This is not only Huawei's commitment to social responsibility, but also the best interpretation of "technology, no one is left behind".
