Boo! 👻🎃 Happy October! You know what's frightening? The large number of websites that have not been designed with accessibility in mind!

This month we're happy to have Camron Warren talking about adaptive technology and how to design sites to better interface with this technology. His abstract below:

"Estimates suggest that 15% of the world's population is disabled. As such, these potential end users require special design of websites, allowing them to navigate using a variety of non-conventional methods, such as screen readers.

This talk will introduce the concepts of adaptive technologies, various real-world examples of adaptive technology, and the integration of accessible code to make these devices and software work for those end users that require them. Though this talk has been evolved from talks regarding exclusively web accessibility, the key concepts of the talk are translatable to UI development of any type."
