The South Australian ICT and Digital Government hosted an online ‘lunch and learn’ to celebrate Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) 2020. The video of the event is now available on YouTube.
Guest presenter Dr. Scott Hollier spoke on the topic ‘From personal journey to W3C developments and beyond’. Scott provided an overview of his life journey, as a person who is legally blind, and discussed the evolution of assistive technologies. Dr. Hollier then discussed the important work he’s involved in with the W3C RQTF, including:
• addressing the accessibility of remote meetings
• XR accessibility requirements
• best practice in the use of CAPTCHA
The second presentation was Microsoft’s Manny Silanesu who provided details on Microsoft’s partnership with South Australian Government to produce an upcoming online accessibility webinar series.
Scott would like to thank Cliff Edwards and all the attendees of today’s webinar.
