Ed Vaizey, the new minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries with responsibility for digital access and inclusion, is confirmed as the keynote speaker for e-Access ’10: the annual conference and exhibition on access to technology by people with disabilities.

The UK’s leading conference in this vital field looks at the strong business drivers for making web sites, IT systems and all digital technologies as accessible as possible to all, regardless of ability. In today’s tough economic climate, it makes no sense to exclude anyone – citizens, customers or your own staff – through poor service design.
