In preparation for the 30th Annual International Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference, Media Access Australia published Q&A: The Drivers and Case for Document Accessibility. The interview-style article covers the major access issues associated with online documents, and the business case for making electronic documents accessible to as wide an audience as practical.
The California State University, Northridge (CSUN), Center on Disabilities (COD) puts on the Annual International Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference to provide an inclusive setting for researchers, practitioners, exhibitors, end users, speakers and other participants to share knowledge and best practices in the field of assistive technology. Nicknamed in honor of the University, the CSUN Conference is renowned as a forum that showcases cutting edge technology and practical solutions to remove the barriers that prevent the full participation of persons with disabilities in educational, workplace and social settings. The conference is the largest of its kind in the world.
The 30th conference will be held in San Diego from March 2, 2015, to March 7, 2015, at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel.
