Accessibility is key to online success in a Web2.0 world. Robin Christopherson, a leading figure in Europe’s accessibility community, and himself blind, will investigate the challenges and opportunities facing web designers and developers using a wide range of websites and assistive technologies to illustrate good and bad practice. This very practical presentation will also outline the numerous spin-off benefits for usability, platform compliance and revenue that accessibility delivers.
