Accessible applications in Perl - Jouke Visser
Wednesday, The Morgan Stanley Room, 1445, 20 mins

This talk will introduce the audience in how to get started if they want to create accessible applications in Perl.

I will speak from my own experience, since I've been working on this subject for the past 5 years, creating pVoice and other accessible programs. End-users, specifically disabled users, aren't developers. They are not interested in the programming language we all love, nor in installing dozens of modules to get them to start the application. They need a solution for a specific problem. It's your task as a developer to hide the complexity of all of this, and think about functionality. Not an easy task for the average geek ;-)
