Accessible Technology

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session is on Accessible Technology with a focus on how we can make technical documentation accessible.
Accessibility is important, because more than one billion people world-wide have some form of disability, permanent, temporary,or situational. When your website,  application, and documents are accessible, they are more useful for everyone.
As software developers and technical writers, we must know:

* What is accessibility
* Why technology must be accessible
* Who needs accessible technology
The session will have a short activity to make the participants aware of how it feels to be disabled in our day-to-day lives. This sets the context and catches the participant’s interest for the content that ensues.
