Rewatch our “Accessibility, Part One: Using Technology While Blind” webinar

In celebration of Computer Science Education Week, from December 6-12, the Center for Minorities and People with Disabilities in IT (CMD-IT) hosted part one of the “Accessibility: Using Technology While Blind” webinar on December 8. The online session interviewed  Jennison Asuncion, Head of Accessibility Engineering Evangelism at LinkedIn, and Synge Tyson, a Principal Accessibility Consultant.

The conversation between Asuncion and Tyson discussed design, development, and the two can work in tandem to create accessible content and products.

“You’re making it accessible to be inclusive, and that’s why context matters,” Tyson said. “Sometimes people want to get bogged down into doing it this way every time [and] accessibility is not cookie cutter.”
