Excellent talk! Really opened my eyes to how many different ways people with disabilities navigate the web and what we can do to improve upon their experiences.
Learned a few new things I had never heard of before! Always a good reminder to be prioritizing this in the initial design process.
Lot's of good info fro someone with a deep understanding of accessibility.
I had never thought about people with dyslexia using screen readers or people with injuries who temporarily need accessibility tools. This talk really opened my eyes to that.
Before Nic's talk, I'd been aware of a few tools out there for increasing accessibility of your web applications, but it quickly became apparent that I'd barely scratched the surface. Excellent talk. I appreciated how he balanced detail with pointing attendees to references and resources to further their own understanding later. He has an easygoing, amiable presentation-style.
Even though I have a lot of experience in accessibility I still learned a lot.
Really great talk that left me mildly horrified about my own sites as I could immediately think of examples where I had been unknowingly doing things wrong. Nic brought many things to my attention that I had not thought of before and moving forward I feel this session will improve my coding and accessibility practices dramatically.
Nic broadened my understanding of what it means for something have a "barrier." Accessibility matters to a lot more people and in a lot more ways than I had previously realized. He provided plenty of examples of what to do about it, as well as further avenues for investigation.
