Forthcoming Events

The next two events will be at the MDDA premises in Central Manchester on Tuesday 11th October and Wednesday 23rd November.

The October event will be blessed with a presentation from Dr David Kreps on accessibility and data tables (I think). We're also going to nerd out a bit more. This event is going to be a live clinic. Previous sessions have switched people on to the necessity of accessibility. This time, I'm hoping were going to demonstrate some tricks of the trade. We want you to bring along some real world problems you're labouring with right now. We're putting together a panel of experts (Volunteers please!) and we'll get them to sort out your problems as best they can. So start thinking about the issues you have and where not commercially sensitive, bring them along to the meeting.

If you want to attend, please let me know via awg@virtuaffinity.com

The meeting in November we're going to skew to commercial considerations. How do you sell accessibilty to your clients? You can only deliver what the client specifies and pays for. Ideas on presentations and speakers on a postcard please.

And a last point, the nominated pub is the Pitcher and Piano by the Bridgewater Hall.

Hi all just a reminder that I will be giving a presentation on implementing accessibility for the Usability Professional Association this Wednesday the 14th September at 6.30pm at the Cafe Muse. http://www.ukupa.org.uk/north/ for more details. It is a FREE meeting.

I will be looking at an accessibility strategy, so I think it compliments a lot of this groups programme nicely.

Cheers

Stu

I'm happy to sit in on the "experts" panel, though I will not give an "expert" opinion, merely a suggested, pragmatic best practice example *smile*
