About this talk

2020 was the year that the COVID crisis brought Digital Accessibility to the fore. It’s been more than two years since the world rushed online. Since travel was limited, face-to-face appointments were cancelled and in-person events disappeared. As a result it has become more important than ever that online information can be accessed and understood by every website user.

Now that the world has sat up and taken notice of accessibility, what’s next?

Join this session to hear about what’s next for accessibility. Join world leading accessibility experts to learn more about:

WCAG 3.0. When it’s coming and what will be included

The future of AI and accessibility

The rise of inclusive design

Updates to accessibility legislation

What’s coming with wearable and voice technology
