Women In Tech July 2018
This month we are really excited to welcome Seren Davies to Women in Tech, who will be giving a talk on accessibility and how it is more than just supporting screenreaders.
Accessibility Is More Than Supporting Screenreaders
by Seren Davies
All too often we think about accessibility as just meeting the needs of those who rely on screenreaders, but it's a far wider issue than that! In this talk, Seren will explore how people with cognitive, physical, hearing and sight difficulties experience the web, and how the decisions we make affect their experience.
Seren is a Software Engineer at Elsevier working on the ecommerce team. In between co-organising JSOxford and promoting accessibility she can be found doing the occasional bit of nail art. Seren is also on the Code First: Girls Ones to Watch list 2018!
