19:00 - 20:00
Gareth Gareth Ford Williams, The Little Book of Accessibility
Drawing on 16 years experience in digital accessibility at the BBC, this talk is a collection of observations, affirmations, quotes and the like that summarise some of Gareth’s epiphanies and learnings that every accessibility manager needs to get to grips with. This is not about guidelines, techniques, patterns or research, but something more fundamental and akin to the truths behind the tools and techniques we use everyday. These are themes that could form the basis of an accessibility strategy for any organisation as they are about approaches or perspectives to common specific accessibility issues. This talk is not about specifics such as semantics or tab ordering, but written to help organisations understand why these things are important and even how accessibility can be self-sustaining.
