    • 1. Dr Jonathan Hassell ( @ jonhassell ) Director, Hassell Inclusion Chair, BSI IST/45 eAccess-11 plenary 28 th June 2011
    • 2.  
    • 3. Don ’t take my word for it… take Gartner’s… (source: http://www.gartner.com/it/page.jsp?id=1454221 )
    • 4. Starting with what they missed… Your audience is missing... Internet use in the UK Sources: EEDP (2008) and ONS (2007) 42%
        • of disabled people have used the internet
      67% of the general population have ever used the internet
    • 5. Accessibility solutions are too complex… we expect:
      • an Assistive Technology or OS/browser setting/tool to exist to make the site accessible
        • often they don ’t (e.g. text to sign language, text to ‘Easy Read’)
      • and expect web users to:
        • be aware that an Assistive Technology or OS/browser setting/tool exists for their need
          • (even with sites like BBC My Web My Way to point the way) most are not
        • are able to afford that technology
          • most are C2DE so have difficulty affording expensive techs
        • are able to work out how to install it
          • most are not technical (don ’t know what a browser is) and scared of downloads
        • are able to work out how to use it
          • most are unconfident
        • are able to use it to access online content
          • thus… most never get this far, even if the site is WCAG AAA
      • … and to do this for every device they use
    • 6. Mobile is here… and taking over…
    • 7. Tablets just make it more so…
    • 8. Websites Browser (incl. toolbars) OS settings ‘ My Desktop/Laptop/Netbook’ Device An accessible user experience requires 4 technology levels to work together… Installed ATs
    • 9. Websites Browser (incl. toolbars) OS settings ‘ My Desktop/Laptop/Netbook’ Device What’s in place on mobile…? – Apple or complexity... Installed ATs ‘ My mobile/tablet (web)’
    • 10. On mobile: oh, where did my browser settings go…?
    • 11. Mobile: the browser is dead… long live apps…
    • 12. Websites Browser (incl. toolbars) OS settings ‘ My Desktop/Laptop/Netbook’ Device With apps: this cuts the browser out of the equation… Installed ATs ‘ My mobile/tablet (web)’
    • 13. 1 website => apps for different OSes, each with different accessibility capabilities…
    • 14. Web products are available across multiple-devices
    • 15. But experiences rarely cross device boundaries well…
    • 16. The cloud is already here… full of potential… and challenge…
    • 17. Walled-gardens… the importance of Social: on mobile, you can spend your entire time in Facebook… Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-mobile-sites-uk-2011-2 ‘ UK users spent 2.5 billion minutes on Facebook in Dec 2010; closest competitor was Google with 702m mins’ ComScore
    • 18. Unfortunately Facebook’s accessibility isn’t all it could be (thankfully Facebook on mobile is more accessible than on desktop)
    • 19. Video goes totally mainstream… ‘ By 2013, >25% of the content that workers see in a day will be dominated by pictures, video or audio…’ Gartner Yet captions are expensive, and audio-description is even harder…
    • 20. Accessibility standards have successes…
    • 21. But also have big gaps… Apps IPTV
    • 22.  
    • 23. The future… is pervasive digital… for everyone… we hope…
    • 24. The future… is more simple… and joined up…
    • 25. Example: MyDisplay - a simple accessibility personalisation system Two clicks to change the way the site is displayed…
    • 26. Three more clicks to tweak and save your theme…
    • 27. And the rest of BBC Online (even mobile) uses your preferences… that ’ s it…
    • 28. The future… is ubiquitous – multi-device & joined-up
    • 29. MyDisplay: it would be even better if people can take their preferences on their whole journey
    • 30. In the future we ’ re going we need to cross all boundaries… ‘ My Desktop/Laptop/Netbook’ ‘ My other computer’ ‘ My mobile (apps & web)’ ‘ My tablet’ ‘ My IPTV/ games console’ Device Websites Browser (incl. toolbars) OS settings Installed ATs
    • 31. Assistive technologies The current choice: verticals vs. ecosystems Simple but inflexible e.g. Apple Complex but flexible e.g. Microsoft, Android, YouView
    • 32. What people really want… Simple & flexible +
    • 33. The future… is context-aware… adaptive… multi-modal… Understands you… Knows where you are… Senses the lighting… And noise… And what you are doing…
    • 34. In the future, “we” are likely to be “them”…
    • 35. And there will be more and more of “ us… ” So accessibility will become more and more important…
