Yevgen Borodin: Improving Accessibility for the General Public

Date: Thursday, September 12, 2013
Description: FCC Accessibility & Innovation Initiative Speaker Series - 10:00AM - 12:00PM EDT

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.

The webcast is free to the public and does not require pre-registration.

Pre-registration and accommodations: Pre-registration for in-person attendance is not required but highly encouraged. Please RSVP to aiispeaker@fcc.gov.
