I know that we have been very busy with our own work. But just to show to you that Philippine Web Accessibility Group has not been idle these past few months, I would like to announce that there will be a Web Accessibility Forum tomorrow, August 2, 2011 from 8:00 am to 12:00nn at the “Occupational Health and Safety Center in North Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City in front of Veterans Golf Club.
This activity is in line with the celebration of “White Cane Safety Week” slated from August 1 – 6. The forum will convene the webmasters/web designers of different government agencies as well as key non-government stakeholders in making their websites accessible to Persons with Disabilities called for in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities.
Mr. Julius Serrano of ATRIEV will be giving short lectures on access of blind persons on the Internet while I will be giving a brief overview of laws and Philippine circular regarding web accessibility.
This forum is free. You may want to drop in to OHSC if you don’t have conflict with your schedules. See you there! 🙂
