Accessibility legislation:  what it means for online publishers

10 November 2004, The Women's Library, Old Castle Street, London, E1 7NT

Chair: Eleanor Williamson, Information Architect, Ingenta


Recent legislation and publicity campaigns have raised the profile of the
issue of Web site accessibility to a level that can no longer be ignored
by online publishers. This meeting will enable you to understand the key
issues that underpin accessibility and the legislation your organisation
will need to comply with.

The RNIB's Donna Smillie will explain the difficulties faced by visually
impaired Internet users and how they can be overcome. Steve Beesley,
Project Manager of the Disability Rights Commission undertook a major
report on UK Web site accessibility, which will guide you through the
minefield of recent standards and legislation. Justin Cooke, Managing
Director, Fortune Cookie will describe the positive business benefits that
can be obtained by ensuring your online publishing is accessible to all.
