What is the talk about?
Andrew: Universal Design & Accessibility in the Typing Experience: The Sound of One Hand Typing
The typing experience, particularly on mobile and tablet devices, is a poor experience, but it's even worse for users with only one hand! If we were going to re-design cross-device typing systems, how would we go about it?
Through the lens of typists who only have the use of one hand or arm, this presentation outlines the difference between universal design and accessible design, and how universal design could be a step in the right direction toward creating a better typing experience for not only disabled typists, but for us all!
Who is it for?
Andrew: Because accessibility and universal design are such a wide issues, this presentation speaks to a wide audience.
Those interested in new technologies and in user experience design will probably get the most out of this presentation.
What will the audience get from it?
Andrew: The audience will better understand how designing universal experiences can help to lead to a better overall experience for everyone and how those designs can be tested through the metric of accessibility.
What do you presently work at?
Andrew: I work everyday at learning new things and honing my skills. I strive to be a better user experience designer.
Which of your existing achievements do you value the most?
Andrew: I'm proud to be a graduate of Indiana University.
What would you like to achieve?
Andrew: I'd like to have the respect of my peers.
What do you look forward to at the WebExpo?
Andrew: Meeting wonderful new people.
