Digital Content and Disability Seminar


Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre & South Cloisters | Wilkins Building (link Map)
Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

This afternoon seminar will examine accessibility and usability issues in digital content, with a particular – but not exclusive – emphasis on learning-disabled people. Within this area, themes will centre around different hardware (mobile, laptop, e-book reader), media (web, e-book, apps), barriers to effective use and experts from particular sectors will explain initiatives attempting to address the differing access needs. The role of supporters may also be considered.

The seminar is part-funded by The British Academy, as part of a Post-Doctoral Fellowship awarded to Dr Peter Williams, conference co-organiser and co-chair.

Doors will open from 13:00 for registration, and the event will start at 14:00. The event will be followed by a short wine reception.

The registration fee is £95/person - please register online (some student and speaker concessions available - please email peter.williams@ucl.ac.uk). A full programme will be available soon.
