Date and Time: Thursday, February 8, 2007 at 3 p.m.

Individuals with disabilities have struggled over the past 2 decades
to gain access to Web content; content that powerfully predicts academic and
employment success. As the field moves to new technologies (e.g., AJAX),
what are the likely outcomes for individuals who struggle to gain basic
access? Dr. Rowland will discuss the experiences of individuals with
disabilities as they attempt to gain access to current content. She will
forward the argument that there are many reasons why developers should keep
Web accessibility in mind now and in the future. One of those reasons is
that from a technologic standpoint, it is the smart thing to do.
