Techshare: putting accessibility to information centre stage in India

At the start of February I presented at Techshare in Delhi, India’s first ever conference for technology for people with disabilities. It was an eye opening event with people gathered from both government, industry and non-profit from all over India and the world.

It was fascinating to find out about what is happening in India with regards to web accessibility and talk to different people, learn what the drivers are and what needs to be done to promote accessibility. As an invited guest blogger on the UN Global Initiative for Inclusive ICT (G3ICT) I pulled these thoughts into an article. This, I hope, will be the first of a series of articles looking at web accessibility in various locales. Next will be China as I’ll be speaking about the cross over between web and mobile accessibility at the WWW 2008 Conference and gathering information there in April.

  1. Hi Sanjana, many thanks for the info, I wasn’t aware of SiliconIndia. I’ve signed up and posted the story which can be found at http://blogs.siliconindia.com/Henny/. Hopefully it’ll draw some comments as I’d love to learn more about what people think in India about web accessibility.

    Great tip off!
