Guest lecture by Ed Lopresti on Cognitive Accessiblity
Abstract: Some computer users have difficulties with cognitive tasks such as memory, problem-solving, attention, or processing of text or other types of information. These difficulties can result from developmental disabilities such as intellectual disability, autism, or learning disabilities; or acquired disabilities such as brain injury, stroke, or age-related memory difficulties. This presentation will address the needs of people with cognitive disabilities, and ways in which the visual design and content of websites can be constructed to meet those needs. The presentation will also consider application of these cognitive accessibility principles to software design in general.
