Welcome to e-Access 12, the UK's leading conference on the design, access and use of technology - websites, smartphones, tablet computers and software - for disabled people and for everyone. This year's event is on 28th June 2012 in Westminster, central London.
We think all users and citizens should be able to benefit from all goods, products and services. It makes sense from every angle: business, equality and government. Has your organisation got it covered?
In the internet age, every organisation is a technology organisation.
From computers to smartphones and the web, your employees use technology and your customers or service users do as well. With millions in the UK affected by some form of disability, from dyslexia to mobility problems, no organisation can afford to be using technology that is not as accessible as possible. And there is a legal requirement for reasonable access.
Whatever stage you are at with your thinking on 'e-accessibility', our conference will help, from practical advice on where to start to more detailed discussion groups to hone expertise.
Peter Abrahams and Henny Swan, from the BBC, will jointly chair a workshop: Moving together: mobile apps for inclusion and assistance.
With the mobile revolution continuing apace, smartphones and tablet computers are the latest mainstream technology that can either present huge liberation and independence for disabled people, or simply another method of exclusion.
In an attempt to ensure it is the former, this Spring the One Voice for Accessible ICT Coalition with sponsorship from BT published the first ever in-depth report into access to mobile devices and apps by disabled and older people - "Moving together" - aimed at every organisation developing a mobile app.
Alongside this report, One Voice produced a set of guidelines for mobile developers, the "First seven steps to accessible apps".
