Keyboard Accessibility Presentation at Future of Web Design Tour 2009 in Glasgow

On Monday, 14 September, I had the pleasure of speaking at the Glasgow leg of the Future of Web Design Tour 2009 on the topic of Keyboard accessibility - basic steps towards a more usable and accessible site.

The slides are available in OpenOffice (7.5MB) and PDF (9.85MB) format. Also, make sure to fact-check the results of my small experiment to find a better CSS outline suppression.

It was great to meet up with the local web design and development community, and I’m glad my presentation – and fellow Opera colleague Bruce Lawson’s reprise of his Future of HTML 5 overview – went down well.

Many thanks to the fine folks at Carsonified for the perfect venue and flawless organisation, and a special thanks to Andy Clarke and Paul Boag for agreeing to let their sites be ripped apart and used as examples.
