Accessibility and Macromedia: using Macromedia products to create accessible web content

Details of a forthcoming event sponsored by the Royal National Institute for the Blind.

 

 

 

When: Friday 25 January 2002, 3pm-5pm

Where: Theatre, International Students House, 229 Great Portland Street, London W1, UK.

Nearest tube: Gt Portland St, Regent's Park.

Who should attend: policy and purchase decision makers from companies and organisations that provide web-based services to the public; representatives from web design agencies; web designers; web project managers; equal opportunity officers, internet users, and anyone interested in knowing what Macromedia is doing to make the company's products fully accessible to people with disabilities.

There can be few web designers who have no knowledge of Macromedia's web authoring products, from Dreamweaver to Flash, and many more. Many of Macromedia's customers are concerned with creating web sites that are accessible to everyone, including people with disabilities. In his presentation, Jon Harris of Macromedia will reveal the steps the company is taking to ensure that Macromedia products enable web designers to create web content that everyone can use.

This event provides excellent networking opportunities for anyone interested in the subject of accessible web design. The atmosphere is informal and conducted in a manner befitting a Friday afternoon. Be sure to bring business cards with you.

Key speaker: Jon Harris, Technical Sales Manager, Macromedia Northern Europe Session introduced by: Julie Howell, Campaigns Officer (Internet), RNIB
