Designing for Disabilities

A session at Big Design Conference 2011

Friday 15th July, 2011

4:00pm to 5:00pm (CST)

Think accessible design is dull? Well, think again! A funny thing happened on the way to inclusive design - innovation, imagination and unexpected benefits. Let's look at cool new advances from WAI-ARIA that make rich UX design fully accessible. Imagine a touch screen usable by the blind, voice recognition that captions automatically and much more! We'll take a look at the concept of Progressive Enhancement and see how innovation is transforming the disability experience - while providing flexible use options for everyone! You'll be surprised!
