Upcoming conference will focus on technology for disabled students
The 10th Annual Accessing Higher Ground Conference on Assistive Technology and Accessible Media in Higher Education, which is co-sponsored by the CU Disability Service begins today.
“The conference’s focus is on adaptive technology for disabled students,” said Howard Kramer, 48, Assistive Lab Coordinator and coordinator for the conference. “It [also focuses on] how to make media accessible [to handicapped persons].”
The conference features distinguished people in the technology field, including keynote speaker E. A. Draffan, a British speech-and-language therapist who specializes in dyslexia and assistive technology and George Kersher, whose focus is in standard electronic formatting.
“[Kersher] is one of the more exciting speakers that will be attending,” said Kramer.
The four-day conference at the Millennium Harvest House in Boulder will have 50 events including different hands-on workshops and lectures on Podcasts, Web 2.0 and accessibility and Civil Rights issues in Web access.
