The Federal Communications Commission will host a “Developing with Accessibility” event at the agency headquarters on September 6-7.
The program is designed to spur increased collaboration on accessibility solutions among developers from industry, consumer and government.
The event will encourage the use of accessibile application programming interfaces, as well as publicly available data sets, in order to build accessible apps for mobile phones and websites. One of the key objectives is to promote the concept and practice of developing applications within accepted accessibility guidelines and maximizing their usability for everyone, including people with disabilities.
Register for the event by sending your name, affiliation and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 31, 2012.
