WEBED-GMU02: Decoding Mobile Technologies: Review of accessibility features of Android, iOS, and other mobile operating systems
DATE: Thursday, May 19 at 12:30-2:00 p.m. Eastern Time
Korey Singleton, from GMU, will highlight the increasing accessibility of mobile technology and how it is providing more opportunities in the workplace, in education, and at home for individuals with disabilities. Specific emphasis will be on Smartphone technologies. Although a few apps will be discussed, this webinar will focus more on the universally designed features (I.e., text-to-speech, voice recognition, text messaging functions, home remote control solutions; scanning text, GPS, etc.) that are available on today’s mobile devices. This session will include a discussion of the various features available, brief demonstrations of how some of these tools work, as well as product comparisons.
1. Learn about the built-in tools/features that enable access to mobile technologies for individuals with disabilities.
2. Discuss the differences and similarities, in terms of accessibility, between the different mobile operating systems.
3. Understand and identify which mobile operating systems provide the greatest level of access to users of a specific disability type (e.g., vision loss).
Korey Singleton manages the George Mason University Assistive Technology Initiative (ATI). The ATI works collaboratively with other units within the Mason community to develop and coordinate the implementation of a university-wide plan to ensure equivalent access for individuals with disabilities to information technology and communications. He has worked as an assistive technology specialist for over 15 years providing needs assessments, training, and support for individuals with sensory, physical and cognitive impairments, including persons with multiple disabilities.
