Jeff Singleton and Thomas Logan from BayFirst both presented groundbreaking presentations at the 2008 California State University at Northridge (CSUN) Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference.
Jeff’s presentation was to a near-capacity audience and was on the subject of writing complete and effective technical bug reports for accessibility issues. Jeff applied his knowledge and experience as a software tester and developed a simple yet extremely effective and proven way to have issues documented, noticed, and fixed by major software companies. This method can be utilized by both professional QA personnel as well as end-users. This was well-received by an appreciative audience at CSUN, the world’s largest conference on IT accessibility.
BayFirst continued its leadership role by having Thomas Logan demonstrate a screen reader for the New York Times that he developed around Microsoft’s UI Automation framework, the company’s future model for accessibility. Thomas demonstrated accessibility benefits in Microsoft’s UIA framework that were previously unavailable to screen reader technologies – thus raising the bar for what users with disabilities can expect from AT and IT vendors.
