20 September 2018 · · Sevilla

Julio Abascal was invited to give a keynote lecture entitled "The Digital Accessibility from the User Point of View" at the CHIRA 2018 and NEUROTECHNIX 2018 congresses held in Seville from September 19 to 21.

Abstract: From its foundation in 1985, the Egokituz Laboratory of HCI for Special needs has researched the application of diverse HCI methodologies and technologies to enhance the inclusion and digital accessibility of people with diverse types of disabilities. Along this time we discovered that the human side of the HCI requires specific attention that technology oriented people -we- are not always qualified to pay. In this talk I will review some mistakes that lead us to learn it and our approaches to overcome them.
