Friday, July 22, 2016: 5:00 pm (Friedman): In this presentation, Shaf will be discussing the various methods blind and visually impaired people use to accomplish everyday tasks, with an emphasis on technology, screen reading software, and application design from a blind person's perspective. There will be live demos of screen reading software, OCR apps for smartphones, wearable devices, and mobility aids (time permitting). There will also be a discussion on myths and stigmas relating to blindness, an audience Q&A regarding accommodating those with a visual impairment, and tips and tricks for those who develop applications to include accessibility in their core design.
