Standards.Next: cognition and accessibility

After the success of the HTML5 meetup we’ve set a date for our next event: cognition and web accessibility.

We wanted to do this as it seems to be the area that we web developers know the least about, most probably because it’s the area that is least documented and understood. We are all different and never more so than when it comes to cognition.

We have some excellent speakers including Antonia Hyde who leads in her field and also worked on Easy YouTube with Christian Heilmann . David Owens will be sharing what he learnt from user testing with people with cognitive problems and Jamie Knight will be sharing his experiences as as web designer with autism. Ian Pouncey from Yahoo! will also be sharing what he has learnt along the way.

So come armed with your questions, thoughts and ideas to City University, Saturday September 19th from 1pm to 4pm.

Sign up on Upcoming and see you there.
