Twitter And Assistive Tech
Dennis Lembree (@dennisl) and Joseph O’Connor (@csunwebmaster) are presenting “Accessibility of Twitter for Mobile, Desktop and Web” at the 25th Annual International Technology and Persons With Disabilities Conference in San Diego, California. The conference dates are from March 22 to 27. The presentation is scheduled at 8 a.m., Thursday, March 25.
You Can Help!
We are asking you to tweet about using Twitter with assistive tech on two topics:
- How do you deal with the interfaces?
- How has Twitter changed things for you?
Optional: audio record the written Tweets at http://twaud.io/ or whatever you want to use. If you do record, please be sure to record what you have written in each Tweet you write. Write a Tweet, record that Tweet. You don’t have to record your Tweets to participate.
This might be a good time to try Dennis Lembree’s Accessible Twitter site and to Tweet about the experience.
How We’ll Use Your Tweets
We will use the Tweets/audio in our #csun10 presentation. We’ll present the Tweets on screen and hear the words – something for everyone. We’ll be looking for patterns such as the use of desktop applications with ZoomText, or mobile text with Talks, or mobile app with VoiceOver. These patterns will be touch-points for our presentation.
The hashtag for these Tweets will be #csun10s with the “s” representing story.
When Do I Start?
The days/dates we’ll be collecting Tweets and audio are Friday, February 26 – Saturday, February 27 in the northern hemisphere; Saturday, February 27 – Sunday, February 28 in the southern hemisphere.
Feel free to be creative, to have fun, to be serious, to be furious, to be whoever you are. You know you want to do it!
