Funka Accessibility Days
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. Welcome to Funka Accessibility Days 9-10 april 2019!
For the eleventh consecutive year, we offer you the opportunity to learn new things, network, meet top-level specialists and test assistive technology. In 2019, there is a great deal of focus on the Web Accessibility Directive with key speakers from the European Commission and monitoring agencies. As usual, we mix policy and strategy sessions with solid advice on how you can work to effectively meet the requirements and provide hands-on examples.
On the in-depth tracks we will, among other things, identify how documents can be made accessible to comply with the regulations and work for everyone. It's a topic many have asked for and we promise both practical tips and live demonstrations! Developers can choose technical walkthroughs of standards and code samples with suggestions for smart solutions. As an author, you will find results from surveys and tests showing how content becomes easier to understand for everyone.
We provide insights into the latest research findings, especially regarding cognitive accessibility, where many exciting things happen at the same time. In addition, we present the steps taken to make content management systems to generate higher levels of accessibility by default.
A great way to learn is to listen to those who have made the accessibility journey themselves. Therefore, we have customers who present about successes, methods and how to avoid pitfalls. The user perspective is always included, not least in the exhibition where you can try out different kinds of assistive technology and get a better understanding of how your interfaces work for different audiences.
Regarding trendspotting, we look at the latest technology and how artificial intelligence can simplify work on accessibility. In addition, we present the upcoming European Accessibility Act that covers parts of the private sector. There will of course be surprises, networking opportunities, meet the experts and all the other points of the program that thousands of previous participants have given high ratings over the years!
