The usual unconference W4A Camp was held at the end of the conference, when we gathered in an informal place and got engaged in informal discussions over issues that we deemed important for us, for our work, for research, and for accessibility in general. Three main themes emerged. One deals with the difficulty of performing experiments with older adults, and the kind of emotional accessibility barriers that need to be tackled. A second topic deals with what is to be considered "accessibility" and what not; in particular whether social, economic, cultural, situational impairments should be included under the term "accessibility" or not. Finally accessibility of the EPUB 3.0 format was discussed as well as the opportunity to tag user abilities rather than disabilities.

Abstract

The usual unconference W4A Camp was held at the end of the conference, when we gathered in an informal place and got engaged in informal discussions over issues that we deemed important for us, for our work, for research, and for accessibility in general. Three main themes emerged. One deals with the difficulty of performing experiments with older adults, and the kind of emotional accessibility barriers that need to be tackled. A second topic deals with what is to be considered "accessibility" and what not; in particular whether social, economic, cultural, situational impairments should be included under the term "accessibility" or not. Finally accessibility of the EPUB 3.0 format was discussed as well as the opportunity to tag user abilities rather than disabilities.
