We are delighted to announce two more speakers have been confirmed for our A11y Camp 2018 conference program.
As it happens, these two speakers (or three, actually), like several others at A11y Camp this year, come from a section of the digital design and development community that is critical to the full adoption of accessible and inclusive design.
They are not necessarily accessibility specialists, and they don’t necessarily have personal or professional experience of disability. Rather, they are digital tech professionals who understand that accessibility is simply part of the job.
As one puts it, it should be “business as usual”. The reality is we currently still have to say “should be”, and not yet “is”. But these speakers know how and why it can be done and must be done.
Follow the link on each title to get more detail on them and their presentations, as well as how to register for the conference.
From Trainwreck to BAU – The Commercial Reality of Accessibility
Accessibility should just be business as usual, but this is not always the case.

We’ve had a strong response to the A11y Camp workshops this year – so much so that we have to advise that Karl Groves‘ Accessibility Testing workshop on Friday 19 October has already sold out. We are setting up a wait list in case someone drops out.
That still leaves one full day and two half day workshops, as follows (and yes, these workshops are filling up, too):
Day One, Wednesday 17 October – Workshops
- 9am-12.30pm Structured Negotiation – Collaborative Tools for Advancing Accessibility, with Lainey Feingold
- 30pm-5pm WCAG 2.1 – What’s it all about?, with Allison Ravenhall
- 9am-5pm Introduction to ARIA, with Russ Weakley
