“Caesar” Eghtesadi Receives the American Council of the Blind’s Coveted James R. Olsen’s Distinguished Service Award
On July 11 during its annual conference The American Council of the Blind presented its highly coveted James R. Olsen Distinguished Service Award to Dr Khosrow “Caesar” Eghtesadi. The award was presented at ACB’s annual conference held this year in Rochester, NY. The plague in English and Braille reads, “ACB James R. Olsen Distinguished Service Award Presented to Doctor Khosrow “Caesar” Eghtesadi for his 20 years of service of making websites, kiosks and mobile apps accessible to the blind community”.
In accepting the award, Dr. Eghtesadi said: “It is honored to receive this award, thanks to ACB’s leadership and members who selected me. So many people supported me for over 20 years, this award belongs to them. Making products and services accessible for blind users is a long journey, we have a long way to go, I intend to be with you along the way.”
Attendee Brian Charlson, an ACB member, and whose wife Kim Charlson was the first women president of ACB, said this about Dr. Eghtesadi’s valuable contributions in advancing opportunities for blind iand visually-impaired people, “Dr. Eghtesadi is more than a research academic doing research in technology. Rather, he is a humanitarian entrepreneur using his abilities for the common good of mankind”
In 2002, Dr. Eghtesadi started Tech For All after his leadership at Pitney Bowes to lead conceptual design of a large scale office equipment (Universal Accessible Copier System), the world’s first, accessible copier for people with disabilities including blind users. For his leadership he has received numerous awards including Computerworld Smithsonian Medal, Smithsonian Institute.
