Session Title

We Are All Disabled: Making Your Part of the Web Accessible

Presenter Information

Cynthia Ng, Langara College

Description

We’re building and improving tools and services all the time, but do you only develop for the “average” user or add things for “disabled” users? We all use “assistive” technology accessing information in a multitude of ways with different platforms, devices, etc. Let’s focus on providing web services that are accessible to everyone without it being onerous or ugly. The aim of this session is to get you thinking about what you can do to make web-based services more accessible for all from the beginning and with small amounts of effort.
