Web Accessibility For Everyone: It Ain’t Rocket Science
Jim Homme, Manager of Bender Accessible Technology Services
Web accessibility has something for everyone. What’s in it for you?
In addition to many other clients, Jim has consulted with Bayer Corporation to roll out the introduction of JAWS as a remote Citrix server application on more than 20 servers, without any interference with the systems, so that a blind Oracle database administrator could administer critical databases. Jim was on the private beta team for JAWS including JAWS version 12. He is the first blind person in the world to receive a certification in Lotus Notes development. Jim speaks on the subject of technology accessibility to many audiences including private sector companies, community groups and academic institutions, including Duquesne University.
