No half-decent web developer would tell you that accessibility is not important. But few developers have been fortunate enough to work hands-on with users who have disabilities, and/or the software that they use. I’ve been very fortunate to have experience with lots of assistive technology — in fact, just yesterday, I had a routine eye checkup, and I was explaining to my eye doctor what a refreshable Braille display was, and how it worked. He was floored!
Well, here’s an opportunity to see a few different users of assistive technology, and see the processes the use to bend computers to their wills. I found the videos uplifting and enlightening — honestly, I had no idea just how good AssistiveWare’s Mac software really was — even controlling Windows through Parallels! It’s good stuff.
