Hi all

A few weeks ago I was asked to give a guest lecture to an undergraduate HCI
class on how accessibility issues relate to HCI. The people who invited me
to give the presentation had organised for one of their programming staff to
stand behind a camera and video the session, to make it available to
students who weren't able to attend the class. I asked if the video could be
made available to a wider audience and they agreed.

So for those interested in how to bring accessibility issues into the
classroom, here is one way. Please remember it was not professionally video
taped. It does not have captions or anything that makes it particularly
accessible and I have had no control over its production.

In order to reduce it to CD size, the last 2 minutes of the talk were
truncated, so you get 85 minutes of an 87 minute talk. It is 683 MB and
unless you have a high speed connection, I suggest you download it, before
playing it. If you are interested in getting a copy of the PowerPoint slides
I used, email me directly and I will send you a copy.


Best wishes,
