Come join us on September 26 as Jason Fayre demonstrates and discusses the iPhone and Nexus 7 user experience as someone who happens to be blind.

The iPhone and Android platforms offer distinct accessibility features and user experiences for blind users, and Jason will take us through how these work at the OS-level, as well as on the web and in mobile apps. Have you designed or developed an iPhone or Android app? Here's an excellent opportunity to have Jason test-drive it and give you live feedback as a blind end-user.

Jason is an accessibility professional currently working for Freedom Scientific, the manufacturer of the JAWS screen reading software. He also trains people on how to use adaptive technology on the PC, Mac, and iOS, combining this with expertise on Linux and Windows administration and support.

The folks at Devlin have generously offered up their space for us to hold our meetup this September. They look forward to hosting us and showing us around their facility.

Note: the entrance to Devlin is located on Frederick Street, please don't get it confused with the doorway on King Street.
