Update on July 16 FCC event: "The Future of Inclusive Design Online"

In addition to the morning presentation announced below, we now have four tech demos lined up for the afternoon in an exhibit area on the same floor of the FCC called the Technology Experience Center.  These demos are intended to illustrate some themes of the morning presentation.

Starting at about 12:30 PM, each exhibitor will give a 10 minute overview of their accessible technology solution.  The exhibits will then be available until 3 PM for people to check out individually and hands on.  The four demos are as follows:

*         The software development kit (SDK) of the FCC's Accessibility Clearinghouse.  This will show how Clearinghouse data about accessible communications products may be queried with the Python programming language, producing alternative presentations to the view on the FCC website -- including mashups with data from other sources.

*         Amaze by Deque Systems.  This will show a cloud-based service that can make automatic corrections to web accessibility problems, displaying the corrected pages to users in real time.

*         Recapd and SyncWords by Frameweld.  This will show tools that can produce rich captions of videos efficiently and accurately.

*         Accessibility Management Platform by SSB Bart Group.  This will show a cloud-based infrastructure for analyzing and managing the accessibility of various website components over a productive life cycle.

[Presentation at FCC on 'The Future of Inclusive Design Online' - July 16, 2013]

On Tuesday, July 16, 2013 the FCC's Accessibility & Innovation Initiative will host Professor Clayton Lewis as part of an ongoing Speaker Series. The event will run from 10:00 am-12:00 noon in the Commission Meeting Room located at 445 12th Street, SW, Washington, DC.

The presentation by Professor Lewis is called "The Future of Inclusive Design Online" and will focus on how the evolution of technology is creating both new barriers and opportunities for accessibility and usability.

Topics will include:

  *   the shift from accessing a presentation of content in a particular form such as a web page, to accessing the underlying content through a program that can render it in a different form, such as an audio summary;
  *   the shift from mass production to personalized customization of content;
  *   the development of tools that allow individuals with disabilities to be producers as well as consumers of content;
  *   and the design of policies that make these things possible.

Additionally, from 12:30 pm-3:00 pm, demonstrations of accessible technology solutions related to topics of the presentation can be viewed in the FCC's Technology Experience Center located in the same building.
