Speaking on a Web Accessibility Panel at the Washington DC Public Library

I’m going to be speaking on a panel on Web Accessibility for a brownbag lunch series at the Washington DC Public Library. It is open to the public. Everyone should come. It sounds like it will be a fun event.

Here is the text of the announcement.

Is your website accessible? Would you like to learn how to make it
accessible? Bring your brown bag lunch to a panel discussion and
networking session on Web Accessibility at the Martin Luther King
Jr. Memorial Library on February 21st, 2007, from 11:30 am to
1:30pm in room A5. The purpose of the program is to educate
librarians, information technology services staff, and other
interested parties about web accessibility. The discussion will be
webcast.

The panel will include:

Preety Kumar, CEO of Deque Systems, a Reston, Va., company that
helps Web site designers automate the task of complying with
accessibility standards,

A Web Accessibility Expert from the National Federation of the
Blind (NFB) in Baltimore, Maryland.
