The California State University at Northridge’s Conference on Disability is going on March 16-18, 2011, and Adobe is offering a number of sessions that we hope people will find interesting and informative, as well as offering opportunities to talk directly to Adobe’s accessibility team and product team members.

The event will feature several sessions and events that I want to provide some details for. Here’s our schedule of events:

Wednesday, March 16

Thursday, March 17

Friday, March 18

The following is not an Adobe session, but it is introducing a valuable resource in the form of a course on accessible Flash development, developed jointly by the Department of Veterans Affairs and SSB BART Group.

Adobe will have several people at CSUN and will be attending the TweetUp as well as being available to talk between or after sessions. Please come introduce yourself and ask questions and share your thoughts.

    Great to see all this training happening. However, I’m concerned that although a huge amount of work seems to have gone into the disabled user, what of the disabled author? I’d like to produce accessible PDF’s but am having trouble finding screen reader friendly software. I’ve been told that Adobe X is less accessible than past versions, and I’m concerned that the financial outlay for less than accessible software may be wasted. Please help, as we are not merely passive users, but full contributors.
