The power and promise of accessibility and inclusive design
Robin will take the stage to thoroughly and wonderfully blast away any preconceptions you may have about the potential of technology to create a truly inclusive future. Being blind himself he provides us with an excellent first-hand example of the choices we can provide for all our customers and users if we simply design with an eye for inclusion. Robin will be talking about (but more importantly demonstrating) the truly empowering nature of technology. From AI to robots, from apps to wearables he'll be showing how putting truly inclusive design at the heart of the customer experience has the power to change and even transform people's lives regardless of ability or environment. Will you be part of the Everybody Technology future?
Christopherson talks about why Apple's implementation of accessibility — including the new Maps app — makes it the only choice for him, and then proceeds to show how phenomenally well, as a blind person, he can use an iPhone. Both the implementation, and his usage, are beyond impressive.
