Most designers will tell you that accessible design is simply good design because it provides universal access to people with disabilities. Universal access is really just the first of many benefits that accessible design provides.
In this talk, we are going to delve into methods, tools, and techniques available to deaf and hard of hearing people. We will also discuss why CART (Communication Access Real-Time Translation or real-time captioning) provides additional benefit beyond universal access to more people, including foreign speakers, remedial readers, people with perfect hearing in noisy/quiet environments, event organizers, multimedia owners.
What You Will Learn:
The presentation will be signed by a deaf speaker and voiced by a sign language interpreter for non-signers as well as captioned in real time to show the example of universal accessibility.
We have brought together several experts to talk about the current and future state of accessibility.
