Digital Content and Disability, London

Logo for the UCL Centre for Digital HumanitiesThis afternoon seminar will examine accessibility and usability issues in digital content, with a particular emphasis on learning disabled people. Within this area, themes will centre around different hardware (mobile, laptop, ebook reader), media (web, ebook, apps), barriers to effective use and experts from particular sectors will explain initiatives attempting to address the differing access needs. Emma House, Deputy CEO of the Publishers Association and Chair of the Accessibility Action Group will be presenting.

This seminar will be of interest to content providers, librarians, publishers, educationalists, supporters of people with disabilities (whether professional or informal carers etc.), interface designers and interested academics.  It represents an opportunity to understand an increasingly significant issue, see how others have responded and work out how to better target and market products.
