Accessibility Camp Toronto Slides: Selfish Accessibility
I’ve updated this post to include the video from the live stream, some links, and a few photos.
Selfish Accessibility: a11y Camp Toronto 2014
There was a live stream throughout the day, which was broken into a morning video and afternoon video. I’ve embedded the morning stream because it includes my talk. I don’t feel this was one of my better performances, but I also have not watched the video yet. You are welcome to do so and wince on my behalf. If the embed doesn’t start at the right place for you, you can either fast forward to 2:01:00, or you can view it set to start at that point on YouTube.
Surprisingly Flattering Tweets
I’m pleased to say that if you only watched Twitter, it looks like I did a good job getting my point across.

Format your HTML5 like a boss. Clean code will automatically make your site more accessible. #allyTO @aardrian— Emily Coffin (@emilycoffin) September 27, 2014

Proximity always matters. User feedback ftw. #a11yTO (alt= CART not close enough to speaker, being moved!) #a11y pic.twitter.com/SmYZMn9gyx— Elle Waters (@Nethermind) September 27, 2014

I snapped some photos, but I’m going to lead with this awesome sketchnote (I’ve never had a sketchnote of one of my talks, so this is pretty exciting for me):
- Integrating Accessibility in the Web Project Lifecycle – a11yCampTO 2014 by Denis Boudreau , Web Accessibility Avenger at Deque Systems.
- What I learned at Accessibility Camp Toronto from Francine Navarro.
Update, December 6, 2014: AMI Event Recap
Toronto’s Accessible Media Inc (AMI) interviewed me in its coverage of the event, which is now live on the AMI site (season 1, episode 1, as this link will show the current AMI Inside episode not this specific episode over time). The abstract:
AMI Inside provides an all access pass to Accessibility Camp, Toronto. D.J. Demers takes us to OCAD University to learn about some of the most relevant digital accessibility topics. Find out what’s new in technology and hear firsthand from some of the attendees as well as Accessibility Specialist and camp co-organizer, George Zamfir.
Accessibility is not a checklist!
