Accessible web applications – my part of the panel at the European Accessibility Forum

Monday, March 30th, 2009

Last week I’ve been to Frankfurt to take part in the “European Accessibility Forum” in Frankfurt. I was one of the members of a panel discussing accessible web applications. Here are the slides which also have audio:

There’s also a video of the panel available, here’s my part:


Christian Heilmann: Accessible Web Applications from Martin Kliehm on Vimeo.

Funnily enough, I can also be seen dubbed in German:


Christian Heilmann: Barrierefreie Web-Anwendungen from Martin Kliehm on Vimeo.

They’ve done a tremendous job translating what I am saying live, but I have to say that seeing me with a different German voice does my head in :)

You can watch all the conference videos coming in one by one by tracking the eafra tag on vimeo.
