July WAWG Meeting
The July WAWG Meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 7, 2009 from 1:00 - 2:30 PM in room 100 North Hatcher Graduate Library. Patricia Anderson will speak on Accessible Design for Second Life (and other Virtual Worlds):
"People have become more aware of accessible design in real life architectural spaces, designing spaces to make them easy to use for persons with and without disabilities or special needs. There is also a trend over the past fifteen years to keep in mind designing web sites to be accessible. An area that is often still neglected are video games and 3d virtual worlds, which present some unique challenges to the designer committed to accessibility. This presentation will describe some of what is happening in Second Life with the engagement of the special needs communities with the programmers and developers from Linden Labs, with a focus on lessons learned and best practices."
Please contact Patty Bradley-Diehl (pattyb) with all questions. See you there.
