This talk will take compare several naming conventions and the pros and cons of each. From here, we’ll look how these benefits can be applied from the beginning of a project and assist the design process.

Responsive Design for Users with Disabilities

Andrew Normand

The hamburger menu is one design element that has made the jump from mobile to desktop. How are users with disabilities responding to these new design patterns? This presentation will look at some of the challenges and opportunities presented by touch screen devices. It also looks at some of the gaps in WCAG 2.0 and how WAI-ARIA can help make mobile content more accessible.

Andrew is the Web Accessibility Program Leader at the University of Melbourne. He employs students with hearing, vision, mobility and cognitive impairments to conduct user experience testing, provide training for IT staff and create a user driven environment for change.
