Adeline Koh (Richard Stockton College) wrote about her experiences at Accessible Future, an NEH-funded workshop on making the web more accessible to people with disabilities. Held at the School of Information at the University of Texas at Austin, the two day workshop was led by Jennifer Guiliano (University of Maryland) and George Williams (University of South Carolina Upstate). Topics explored included theoretical explorations of disability, accessibility, and disability studies as well as methods for implementing accessibility features in digital environments (e.g. HTML5, WordPress, and Omeka).
The workshop will be offered twice more: at the University if Nebraska, Lincoln (Fall 2014) and Emory University (Spring 2015). Registration information is available at AccessibleFuture.org.
