Hi All,


Apologies for the short notice but this is Hot Off the Press!


Christos Petrou, a regular at our morning meetups, has just advised us of a special talk for interested SWAID members tomorrow night at IBM's Innovation Center in Pyrmont, 6pm, by Richard Schwerdtfeger.


Richard is the CTO of Accessibility at IBM, USA, and has been working on accessibility since 1990 where he helped develop the first GUI screen reader for the IBM PC. He has led accessibility efforts on OS/2, Java, Windows (IAccessible2), Web 2.0 Accessibility (WAI-ARIA), and transcoding middleware for seniors. He is currently working to bring on-demand personalized access to the Web.
