Register now to get a discount: 870 EURO per person instead of the ordinary price of 1020 EURO. The early bird offer is on until December 31st.

From a line up of fantastic speakers, we are proud to present:

We have finally managed to get hold of inspiring Scott Jehl, who will speak about some of the challenges we face in making accessible responsive interfaces, and reveal hands-on approaches to addressing them gracefully.

Two of Funkas own accessibility and UX-experts Hampus Sethfors and Moa Glantz will present on how user testing does not only tell you how the interface works, but can also help in spreading understanding internally in the organisation on the need for changes.

One of the most provocative speakers on accessibility, Billy Gregory, will present on the topic: When UX doesn't consider ALL users, shouldn't it be known as "SOME Users’ Experience" or... #SUX?

Fabulous accessibility expert at Facebook, Jesse Beach will talk about how they get all of their developer teams to succeed in accessibility. She will provide many interesting tools and clever ideas to learn from.

From Funkas development and design team, Henrik Juhlin, Christer Janzon and Lina Larsson will show how we solve some of the most common accessibility problems our customers have, for example responsive tables, dynamic forms and icons that help the user.

The international outlook of the year has its focus on New Zealand and we are proud to welcome a very interesting speaker from the field of e-government, Jason Kiss. The monitoring methodology of New Zealand is extra interesting at this point in time, while waiting for the European Web Directive to be implemented.

Funkas Oslo office is bringing two accessibility and UX-experts in Torbjørn Helland Solhaug and Glenn Ivar Husom, who will share good examples and unnecessary accessibility pitfalls when they talk about what often goes wrong despite the best of intentions.

Splendid Debra Ruh will make an inspirational talk, with never ending energy and a large porportion of humour.

 

Meet the experts

A new take in 2017 is that you have the oportunity to book a ”master class” with Funkas experts in smaller rooms, during the event.You can chose to pose you question to a developer, a designer, a language expert, a requirements specialist, an assistive technology expert or an over all accessibility professional – and get answers and recommendations on the spot.

On request, we also provide is a short introduction to web accessibility in 60 minutes, before the conference starts, to help rookies get on track. The idea behind this is of course a try to welcome the curios and shy participants.

Thank you so much for hosting such an inspiring conference. Well executed!

General information on the event

Funka Accessibility Days is northern Europe’s largest conference on accessible ICT. We are proud to welcome some of the world´s leading experts on web accessibility to the beautiful city of Stockholm, Sweden. The event will take place at the Elite Hotel Marina Tower where we will have more or less the whole hotel to ourselves, and where our guests can enjoy modern facilities and a stunning sea view.

The conference has plenary sessions on regulations, legislation and standardisation at national and international level. We also have parallel sessions where you can concentrate on content, design, navigation, and how visitors perceive information. Or you can focus on technology, developer issues, testing tools and assistive technology.

During the conference, there is an exhibition where you can test assistive technology, meet end users, look at new solutions and follow exciting research projects. You can speed date with our best consultants, a perfect way to ask specific question and interesting discussions.

The program is simultaneously interpreted between Swedish and English, Swedish sign language and written transcription.
