The Digital Accessibility Office is hosting a conference-style event in celebration of Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). We are pleased to welcome David DeNotaris, author of “Feeling Your Way Through Life: A Journey Through Challenges, Insights and Possibilities” as our keynote speaker. He will be sharing his personal journey and discussing the importance of accessible technology as a foundation for education and employment. The keynote presentation will be followed by workshops, including a demonstration of Apple’s accessibility features from Jeff Bigham, and a panel discussion with guests from Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, and others about accessibility initiatives in our region.
When people talk about accessibility, they often have a narrow view of it, whether it’s only about disability or that it’s something developers and designers are responsible for in tech. While that’s not wrong, it is insufficient. Learn about bringing accessibility into your work in general as a product manager and understand how accessibility is about us all.
