Upcoming Talks

OMG!Con

This is a bit of a different direction from my usual accessibility discussions. In this talk I am wanting to share about my all time favorite hobby, games.

Whether it be board games, card games, table top, Dungeons and Dragons, or video games. I absolutely love games! Games of all sorts can be amazing ways to form new connections, let off some steam at the end of a long day, or just keep your mind busy. It is no wonder there are some positive health benefits to be had from a variety of games.

However, it can be difficult sometimes to find a game that works for you, and not just because it may be hard to find the type of game that works for you. Sometimes, it can be difficult to find the game you physically can play. Games can be inaccessible just like the rest of society. They can have barriers that prevent people from participating.

In this talk, I'll share:

  • What barriers can exist in games
  • What accessibility options are already being used for a variety of game platforms
  • Things you can do to make your existing games accessible to your friends
  • Resources for helping you find games you can all enjoy

This talk will be open to attendees of OMG!Con Opens in new window. More details will be provided as they are made available.

KCDC 2024

Let's learn what it means to test for Accessibility. How do we determine what is accessible? What tools do we use? How do we put together a test plan?

I commend you for wanting to start this journey, and am not going to let you get lost before you've really begun. This talk aims to get you going in the right direction.

More details will be provided as they become available to me. You can also learn more at the KCDC site Opens in new window.

In particular, my talk is already listed on the Session List page under the Testing and QA category Opens in new window.

Cincy Deliver 2024

Accessibility Testing is an interesting process involving a mixture of automated and manual testing methods with a variety of tools. You may have an Accessibility test plan together, but now you need the tools to put it to use.

In this talk, we'll touch on some of the ways we can use screen readers in a mobile and desktop environment to identify how accessible things are. Additionally, we will touch on a few other tools that can be used, like browser extensions, bookmarklets, and desktop applications.

Cincy Deliver is an amazing non-profit, community-run, software, development conference run by Ohio non-profits, Agile Conferences, Inc., and the Cincinnati .NET User Group Opens in new window.

More details will be provided as they become available to me. You can also learn more at the Cincy Deliver site Opens in new window.
