The Accessibility Summit, an online conference on accessibility, took place earlier this week. The event is presented by the good folks at Environments for Humans (@e4h). The event was one day in the past few years but was extended to two days this year! If you attended or not, take a look at the great information in the Twitter stream using the hash tag #a11ySummit.
Web Axe author Dennis Lembree presented (virtually via Skype) at the Boston Accessibility (Un)Conference, September 15, 2012. He presented a session titled “How To Build An Accessible Web Application” which is packed with great accessibility tips for web developers and web designers. Examples from the web-accessible Easy Chirp application are included. Special thanks to John Rochford (@ClearHelper), Char James-Tanny (@CharJTF) and Ben Amankwata for organizing and logistics.
Coming up soon is the heart of the 2012 Accessibility Camp season. Here’s a great list of the events this fall. Please try to make an event as they are very fun as well as informative. I (Dennis) will most likely be at the LA event.
