The Society for Technical Communication (STC) are holding their 2009 UK Conference at Churchill College, Cambridge, in the middle of June. There are still places available, and full details are available on the event web page.
The blurb for the conference reads:
Are you reaching all your customers?
Are your documents ignoring an important market sector?
How do we make our communications usable by people with hearing and sight difficulties?
How do we work with colleagues and customers who have hearing and sight difficulties?
So this may be a useful and affordable conference for those of us who are particularly interested in accessibility.
Among the speakers is Leonie Watson, from website accessibility experts, Nomensa, and Richard Hodgkinson, who will talk about upcoming “assessibility” [sic] standards in Europe and the USA. Probably, that will be about accessibility, too. 🙂
