Why Blind Users Love Their Touch-Screen Smartphones (And the Business Case for Inclusive Design in the Mobile Universe)

A session at Future Insights Live 2012

Wednesday 2nd May, 2012

11:30am to 12:20pm (PST)

In this presentation blind renowned accessibility expert Robin Christopherson will demonstrate the amazing potential that mobile devices (and even more so, their apps) have to change the lives of users with disabilities. Find out why a camera is so vital for blind users, and how apps that cost a few pence are replacing specialist bits of kit costing thousands of pounds. Inclusive design has a compelling legal and moral case - but it is also an absolute commercial imperative. Robin will go on to explain why it's so vital that every single app you develop should have accessibility well and truly baked in.
