I presented an invited talk at Great West, Bangalore with the title – “Don’t Ignore Your Special Users”. It was on the subject of accessibility with focus on visual disabilities.

It was for the first time that I delivered the core of my presentation against a black backdrop in the slide deck wherein the audience closed their eyes for 15-20 minutes. I wanted them to experience the web from a blind person’s perspective, even if for some time. I asked them later ‘Would you like to be called differently-abled in this state?” The answer was a unanimous – ‘No’.

Following are the slides for your viewing and thinking pleasure.
