Dear all,
I am Bhavya Shah, an avid user of the F123 Access extension and
Mozilla Firefox, a web accessibility progress follower, a and one of
organizers of the NVDACon International 2016 Users and Developers
Conference 10th Anniversary Edition.
I would like to cordially invite all of you to the NVDACon
International 2016 Users and Developers Conference 10th Anniversary
edition unfolding its commencement in only a couple of days now,
especially because NVDA has always been upfront with support for
modern web and Internet technologies, and this edition of the NVDACon
features two very web accessibility pertinent lightning talk sessions.
To brief you all a bit, NVDACon, is an annual gathering of NVDA users and
developers to discuss NVDA's past, present and future, its
progressions over the last year, bug reports and feature requests, and
learn on a multitude of specialized focus topic, culminating with a
keynote from NVDA's two co-founders and developers.
This year, being NVDA's 10th year of existence and provision of
excellent screen reading service to over a hundred thousand visually
impaired people over the globe at no addition cost, NVDACon has become
much bigger and internationalized, with folks presenting from Mozilla,
Liplouis, Dictation Bridge, F123 Access and resident NVDA experts
speaking about add-on development, providing 101s for newbies or users
of other screen readers, etc.
The  F123 Access (Accessibility): 20:00 UTC (presenter: Fernando
Botelho) to be held on the 22nd of April, 2016, and the Lightning
Talk I (Community): 17:00 UTC Mozilla's collaboration in NVDA
development: Marco Zehe (Mozilla Foundation) on the same day, are the
two sessions I am
most specifically referring to.
The complete conference agenda, schedule, timings, participation
instructions and related information can be found on the NVDACon
homepage at www.nvda-kr.org/en/nvdacon.php
I wanted to propose, that in light of F123 Access's representatives
participating in this global and mass celebratory event as a
demonstration session about F123 Access and NVDA with Internet
accessibility support, as well as a major Mozilla accessibility
engineer joining in for a presentation, it would be potentially
extremely possible to get web accessibility concerns communicated to
the concerned and for more web accessibility experts, trainers,
advocates and others to network and together collaboratively create a
more accessible Internet.
Conclusively, I sincerely look forward to the participation of many of
you Internet accessibility specialists as well as Webaim
representatives not only in these two focus sessions, but also
throughout the conference.
P.S. Feel free to mail me privately in case you have any concerns on
enquiries regarding NVDACon International 2016 or related subjects.

Warm Regards
Bhavya Shah
