Improving Accessibility for the General Public

Accessibility & Innovation Initiative Speaker Series Presents Yevgen Borodin

  • Washington, D.C., USA
  • September 12, 2013 | Time: 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
  • Venue: FCC HQ 

Summary: Very few technologies have been developed to be universally accessible from the start. While technologies are advancing at a rapid pace, their accessibility is often an afterthought, with the third-party assistive tools always lagging behind the latest innovations. But is there anything we can do about this?

In this talk, Dr. Borodin will give a historic overview of how we have been “chasing the moving target,” on the example of Web accessibility. He will examine the strategies we could have pursued to keep up with the chase. Finally, he will propose a solution that could help us win this race.
