Thanks to AbilityNet for releasing all the transcripts and offering them for us to enjoy. There were some really good presentations at this event, hope you find something!

Again with Ajax Accessibility – my talk at AbilityNet in London

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

Today I went again to help out AbilityNet with one of their workshops talking to a small group of developers and project managers about the problems with Ajax and Accessibility and general Web2.0 concerns. Instead of giving a lot of technical details I tried to point the audience to good resources and get them to find out more for themselves. I hope I succeeded.

For the first time I also successfully recorded the talk in mp3 format using the mac powerbook. GarageBand is great for recording, but the editing features suck, good old Audacity came to the rescue. Bear in mind I had 4 hours sleep and a day of presentations behind me when I did this one, and it is more fun to see me explain some of the pauses with gestures :)

Summary about the Accessibility2.0 conference on YDN

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

I just put up a summary blog-post about AbilityNet’s Accessibility 2.0 conference on the Yahoo Developer Network blog.

It is pretty tricky writing a summary of a conference you spoke at yourself, I found. In any case, I wanted to say thanks to everybody involved in organizing the conference and the other speakers. I learnt quite a bit myself at the conference and I’ll be happy to come around next year to see where we’ve come.

This is my talk given at AbilityNet’s Accessbility 2.0 conference in London today. In it I am talking about how we try to sell accessibility and the mistakes we make while we do so.
