Website Accessibility Talk 23 November 2004

The Isle of Man section of the British Computer Society are hosting a talk on the legal obligations and technical considerations of website design for accessibility.

The talk will be presented by Mr Nigel Danzelman, and provide a practical, hands-on guide to the design principles which underlie the world wide web. The event is to be held on Thursday 25th November at the Villa Marina, Douglas from 6pm with talk commencing 16:15pm until around 7:30pm.

Cameron Christie, events co-ordinator, explained:

"Over and above questions of best practice, this is of particular importance given forthcoming legislation to govern access to the Internet by the disabled."

The Isle of Man Section of the British Computer Society has seen local membership grow by over 50% since it was formed earlier this year.

Joint Chairman, Paul Jarvis commented:

"This is further evidence that the professional standards encouraged by the BCS have found a natural audience in the Isle of Man, an established based for both traditional and leading edge computing."

The inaugural event in September heard former head of the West Midlands Police Hi-Tech Crime Unit, Mr Russell May BSc(Hons) CITP CEng MBCS EnCE present a very well attended talk on Computer Forensics.

The Web Accessibility talk is open to both members and non-members. Admission if free but please confirm attendance by contacting: BCS Isle of Man iom.secretary@bcs.org.uk
