This month Wendy Chisholm is talking about Accessibility Makes the Experience More Usable by More People.
Wendy is a user experience person by passion. Her focus is on creating experiences (both online and off)
that are accessible to people with disabilities which in turn should
make the experience more usable by more people. She is curious about
talking with you about applying universal design to your own work and
she may challenge your assumptions about people with disabilities; She also hopes you challenge my assumptions about design and what's practical.
Wendy is looking towards the future (participated in the HTML5 Working
Group) and wants to pick your brains about where the web is headed and
how we can ensure it is inclusive...how can we make universal design
cheap and easy? i.e., how do we make accessibility accessible? What
barriers have you run into while making your work accessible? Or has
it never been an issue? If not, why not?
A bit more about her: she co-authored the O'Reilly book "Universal Design
for Web Applications" and she worked at the W3C for 6 years. She currently
splits her time between the UW and consulting.
For even more, including a link to her stint as Wonder Woman:
Come join the fun with Wendy at IxDA Interact.
