Third CETIS-TechDis Accessibility Special Interest Group (SIG) Meeting

The Third CETIS-TechDis Accessibility SIG (Special Interest Group) Partnership Meeting will take place at the University of Central Lancashire. There is no charge for attending the meeting and lunch will be provided.

The agenda will include:

  • Dynamic Stylesheets: Customising the User's Experience.

  • Breaking down Barriers and Bridging the Gaps - The Virtual College's experiences in making web-based content accessible and the issues involved in trying to strike a balance between accessibility compliance and usability.

  • The NoVA (Non-Visual Access) Report - An overview of the findings from the NoVA Report, which examines the issues regarding making library and information services accessible to people with visual impairments and offers possible solutions.

  • Discussion Session.

Accessibility issues are of importance to all those involved in developing learning technology or creating content for it. The SIG focuses on creation and implementation (i.e. on content authors and on developers) and is open to anyone interested in interoperability standards and accessibility.
