Slides: The Role of Design in Accessibility — a11yTO Meet-up
Last night I drove up to Toronto, braving concurrent matches from two of their local sporting clubs, parking in oblivion, navigating a maze of progressive rings of fencing, sneaking into the venue via a propped service door, and presented on the role of design in accessibility. It was a code-light talk, which was a novel change of pace for me.
The slides follow. If they do not appear, view them directly at SlideShare. Owing to recent events, I want to explicitly state that no, you do not have permission to clip any of these slides, crap as they are, and use them in your own slides.
There were tweets. I am glad I shaved.

I always leave #a11yTO meetups with many practical takeaways. Tonight: @aardrian talking about my fav – accessible visual design! Typography, structure, documentation, colour, contrast, etc. Thanks again to the organisers!
Learning about Designing for Accessibility with @a11yTO and @aardrian tonight. A lot of amazing design tips to take home. The pics are just a few highlights.

Great turnout for my #a11yTO talk tonight, and good job by the police on crowd control.
