UX Oxford Thursday, January 12 at 7:00 PM
We have a great speaker lined up for UX Oxford 2017! Thursday 12th January is not to be missed.
This presentation will concentrate on accessibility and inclusion online. In today's diverse society, it has never been so important to consider complete inclusion. Many focus on Vision, Hearing, Motor and Cognitive, a checklist and in doing so all too often miss out on the "grey areas" meaning your window may not be quite as open as you thought.My presentation will enable you to consider the grey areas often hidden amongst the four main 'categories' of accessibility. Often when considering the minority things very much fall into place for the majority.
