Introduction to Accessibility
- Time & Place
When you hear "accessibility," you think "screen readers," right? You wouldn't be alone, but there's much more to accessibilty than that. In this event, guest speaker Michelangelo Iaffaldano will lead a discussion on
- what an accessible product is,
- principles of accessibility,
- examples of inaccessible UIs from well-known products, and
- how to design an accessible product.
Michelangelo Iaffaldano is a Toronto designer, visual artist and musician, currently working at the Bank of Montreal. He has previously led the web accessibility initiative at a large Ontario government agency. Michelangelo is joined by Bill Gregory, developer and Senior Accessibility Engineer at The Paciello Group.
