Make-Sense Taking Part in Accessible Europe: ICT for ALL

Make-Sense will be in attendance at the Accessible Europe: ICT for ALL forum next week, from December 12-14 in Vienna, Austria. CEO David Adi is speaking on a panel, and the Make-Sense team will also have a booth set up with more information on our automated digital accessibility platform.

“I am honored to be sitting on a panel with executives and leaders who are at the forefront of enabling accessibility across the Web,” David said. “The forum should provide enlightening discussion as some of the most innovative companies and developers come together to promote digital accessibility measures.”

The forum is organized by the Telecommunication Development Bureau (BDT) of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and European Commission (EC). The United Nations in Vienna is hosting the event.

David will be speaking during Session 4, “Web Accessibility: Regulation/Standards/Resources”, alongside Monica Duhem, ITU Consultant in Web Accessibility, and Shadi Abou-Zahra, Strategy Technology Specialist Web Accessibility Initiative at the World Wide Web Consortium W3C/WAI. The panel will discuss the latest trends, the role of governments in providing accessible information and user perspective and the role of academia in web accessibility. Roxana Widmer-Iliescu, Senior Programme Officer of the Digital Inclusion Division at ITU’s Telecommunication Development Bureau, will moderate.

The ICT for ALL forum is focused on promoting the development of accessibility measures and initiatives in countries and institutions, by sharing successful outcomes of projects and initiatives that have already been undertaken and fostering efforts and cooperation among stakeholders. The forum highlights why it’s necessary to make Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) accessible to all people, through measures and platforms similar to Make-Sense’s digital accessibility solution.
