A few years ago I wrote about the difficulties of attending CSUN, the largest annual conference focusing on technology and disability. This year, I finally made it to the conference, so it seemed appropriate to write a follow-up post on my reflections, now that I’m back home.
I recently spoke at a conference in a brand new territory for me—Second Life. I gave a session at the International Disability Rights Affirmation Conference (IDRAC 2014), organised by Virtual Ability Inc, a non-profit organisation with a focus on supporting people with a range of disabilities in the use of virtual worlds. It was a novel and fascinating experience for me, and gave me a great new perspective on accessible user experience design.
