Tech Sign Language: Introduction to Web Accessibility

by Cody Ogden | at MinneBar 13 | 12:10 – 1:00 in Harriet | View Schedule

Join me as I introduce the concept of web accessibility while you pick up some technology related sign language. This session is for developers, designers, or anyone involved in building or planning technology experiences for others. Topics include defining web accessibility, the impact inaccessibility can have on your user's experience, and reviewing some tools available to evaluate your projects. I will also showcase concrete examples of accessible experiences that anyone can implement right now.

As a former sign language interpreter, I have had the unique opportunity to build an awareness through observing how disabilities affect one's experience with the world around them. I have been fortunate to incorporate that perspective into my current role as a developer, and I am excited to share my experience with you.
