Scripting Enabled event: tickets available!

July 22, 2008

Tickets are now available for the Scripting Enabled event being organised by Christian Heilmann.

The event will be held over two days on 19th and 20th of September in London.

The 19th will be a day “dedicated to getting real information about accessibility barriers of online systems and techniques to work around them.”

The 20th will be a “development event where we will try to build solutions and alternative interfaces into existing systems that work around the issues we learned about on the first day.”

I should say that I think this event will be really interesting.  I’m going to both days and hope that one or two people I know with learning disabilities will come with me on the second day and will really enjoy it too.

Go to the Scripting Enabled site to find out more and book your tickets!

Scripting Enabled event: getting people together

July 2, 2008

Scripting Enabled is a “ two day conference and workshop aimed at making the web a more accessible place.” Christian Heilmann is organising it (for some time in September) and he needs input and help.

This is a really good and long overdue idea. The event will be over two days with presentations explaining some of the barriers people face online in terms of accessibility followed by some practical action. Hooray!

Developers and experts will be able to work together to provide alternative interfaces and solutions. And hopefully some of those experts will be some of the people who are experiencing the problems in the first place. Perfect!

Go to Scripting Enabled to sign up to the Yahoo Group to register your interest or support.

There’s also a to do list on the site, so let him know if there is anything you can contribute, especially any ideas on venues.  Update:  The venues will be London Metropolitan University and Gamelabs London

I’m really looking forward to this event and will be giving my full support to this however I can.
