Accessibility Showcase: Keynote Speakers

September 2nd, 2008 by Erick Beck

We are happy to announce that Glenda Sims, the “self-appointed Web Accessibility Goddess at UT” and Pat Ramsey, formerly of Southwestern University and now a freelance accessibility consultant will be joining us as keynote speakers for the upcoming accessibility showcase.

Glenda will be sharing with us the framework that the University of Texas has in place for dealing with web accessibility and educational outreach to the campus web community. This will be of particular interest since it is an area that has not been thoroughly examined and decided upon here at A&M. Pat will take a step back and talk about web accessibility in general – what it means, who it affects, why we should do it in the first place.

We are excited to have these two experts in the field joining us, and we we hope that as many of you as possible will make it to the event.

  7. It might be worth looking into if TTVN could stream/record the presentations. At least room 204E of Evans Library is TTVN enabled.
