Interfaces, Accessibility & Superheroes

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

RSVP Required - BAM! POW! Beloved superhero Daredevil squelches his enemies with speed and precision, completely uninhibited by his blindness. Overcoming adversity, discovering superpowers, and saving the world are common themes in comics and graphic novels. Our mission is to bring those themes into the world of accessible design.
The World Heath Organization and the World Bank report that nearly 1 out of 7 of the world's population has some form of disability. Creating products and services that don't include alternate interaction models is a failure on a global scale. Designers and engineers are the middlemen between disability and super-ability, and it is our duty to help break interface barriers. This session will explore examples and methods for understanding and practicing accessible design.
Prerequisites:
Becoming familiar with the accessibility settings of preferred devices and platforms is suggested, though not required.
What to Bring:
Preferred sketching and/or rapid prototyping tools. A digital device of choice (smartphone, tablet, etc)
