e-Access is only a month away and will be the best e-Access conference to date.The committee arranging it have brought together a stellar group of speakers.

In one day you will hear from:

  • Ed Vaizey, Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, who should update us on the Government’s progress since his keynote at e-access ’10
  • Stephen Duckworth, Board Member of the Olympic Delivery Authority
  • Miro Griffiths, Disability Equality Consultant, will discuss Disability in the Real World
  • Nigel Lewis, CEO AbilityNet and chair of the OneVoice Coalition, will announce a first steps to accessible web sites initiative
  • Mark Ferrar, Microsoft; Sarah Hilderley, EDItEUR (standards body for e-books); and Chris Chant, Cabinet Office will predict the future of accessibility.

In between these plenary sessions will be a host of workshops and seminars covering both business and technology issues for the beginner, intermediate and expert attendee. A few that particularly caught my eye:

  • Accessing HTML5—HTML is dead: long live HTML!
  • Accessibility—the legal requirements and how to comply Accessibility of e-learning Procurement for accessibility
