call for topics letter for NVDA CONFERENCE 2019


Austin Pinto <austinpinto.xaviers@...>
 

Hello,

This year, the NVDACon International planning committee would like to
invite you to submit session topics for the upcoming NVDA community
conference (NVDACon). The conference will be held in August of 2019.

NVDA – non visual desktop access, is the software which changes
thousands of lives of visually impaired and blind people worldwide. As
every open source project, NVDA is backed by a fantastic community.
The NVDA community is unique by the fact that visually impaired and
non visually impaired people work together to improve accessibility on
Windows and to boost efficiency when working with third party
applications. NVDA is not only a software, it is a social movement
which is already spread all over the world.
The event which underpins the social interaction between users,
developers, institutions and stake holders is the NVDA community
converence (NVDACon). Every year, the stake holders in this community
are meeting on this online conference and discuss or present
interesting topics related to accessibility and the NVDA screen
reader.

If you represent a company, organization or you are an individual
person who is passionate about accessibility related topics, or if you
are interested to take part or even to present something on the
conference, please submit your topic to
info@nvdacon.org by June 30th, 2019.

There are two presentation types available for NVDACon:
1. Lightning talk: is a fifteen to thirty minutes talk, with
limited time available for questions and answers. In one session there
will be two or three lightning talks.
2. Full length session: this is usually a presentation for sixty or
ninety minutes. Full sessions are great for a more in debth topic
which is covered in more detail.

We are looking forward to your topic proposals.

Sincerely,

Austin Pinto.
member of NVDA con planning and promotion committee.
