Great job making the case for accessibility and how many people are affected. I never know what tools are available and this presentation covers them well. I would have liked more screenshots of some of the tools you mentioned or even a direct roadmap for getting started. That is, use tool X to start with, then use Y to address these other things, etc...

This talk did a really great job of covering why accessibility is important, followed by a huge dump of valuable resources.

One thing that really stood out was the practical use of slides to demonstrate a point — one slide had text with varying contrast levels, while another showed a broken layout due to text scaling. This really elegantly demonstrated common issues without resorting to firing up a browser.
