RE: Baby Steps

"I'd like to get this group started with some introductions. Could you each please write a short email introducing yourself, what you do for a living, where you work, etc.?"

I work for The Paciello Group (TPG) as an accessibility engineer, and with the British Computer Association of the Blind (BCAB) in my spare time. I'm based in the UK, and have been working in web development and/or accessibility since about 1997.

Contact details, links to blog etc. here:

I use Jaws/NVDA on the desktop, and VoiceOver on iOS, which puts me squarely in the "can test, will test" category. Amongst other things I'm part of Freedom Scientific's Jaws beta testing programme, so may be able to file SVG related bugs.

My SVG knowledge is theoretical rather than practical. It's somewhat unrewarding to code something without being able to get at the result! Perfectly happy to code what/where I can though, and also to write use cases/requirements.

Unless the gods of trans-Atlantic travel smile on me, it's unlikely I'll be able to make it to the Bay Area in October though.

Carpe diem.
