Iâ€™m frantically working on my two presentations:
- â€œThe Untapped iPad Market: Is Your Site POUR?â€œ for March 13th at South by Southwest (SXSW) Conference in Austin, and
- â€œThe New AAC (Assistive and Augmentative Communication): Cheap and Disruptive?â€ for March 17th at the 26th Annual International Technology & Persons with Disabilities Conference (CSUN) in San Diego.
i am really looking forward to both conferences because, after working in the web accessibility field for thirteen years, I am finally going to meet many of my mentors, colleagues and possibly even competitors. Iâ€™m looking forward to soaking up even more of their expertise, and to sharing latest best practices, techniques and frustrations.
Amidst drafting the presentations and preparing for my trip, I began wondering how I could possibly capture some of this knowledge, expertise and insights to share with my Blog Accessibility readers.
An idea struckâ€¦
In the Proloquo2Go app, I have prepared various interview questions, which will enable me pick and choose which questions to ask (via text-to-speech) during the interview. Andâ€¦I could record the interview using the movie setting on my camera, mounted on my scooter using the Gorilla tripod.
The result may not be a smooth flowing conversation, but rather a bumpy Q&A session. But thatâ€™s okay, right?
Whatâ€™s amazing isnâ€™t the technology to do it; itâ€™s the confidence to try it. I wouldnâ€™t have felt confident to give this a try a few years ago; Iâ€™m definitely on some kind of journeyâ€¦final destination still unknown.
Will this iPad experiment work? Stay tunedâ€¦If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.
