Sign Up for Access-U May 11-13!

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

I am teaching the following accessible Flash classes at the John Slatin Access-U in Austin, in May! Check them out:

Accessible Flash I: Quality Assurance
Learn how to evaluate accessible Flash
Learn how to evaluate Flash for accessibility. This lecture will go through a checklist of accessible Flash requirements and will discuss several different case studies of Flash evaluations. You will learn just enough about Flash to be able to test for accessibility and give recommendations for improvement.

Accessible Flash II: An Introduction
Learn how to make Flash content 508 accessible
This workshop will cover all the necessary steps in making Flash content fully 508 compliant. Through hands–on practice you will learn how to program content in Flash so it can be read by a screen reader. You will also learn how to program keyboard shortcuts and make Flash content accessible through the keyboard alone.

Great Panel at SXSW09

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

I had a great time at SXSW09 on Andrew Kirkpatricks panel ‘Accessible Flash and Flex Applications’. I met Niqui Merret from and Alaric Cole from Yahoo! We talked about accessible Flash and Flex, and I showed two of our accessible Flash games, a memory game and a whack-a-mole game, both of which are accessible to screen readers.
