CSUN – were you there?

I recently returned from the CSUN International Conference on Technology and Persons with Disabilities.  I was part of a group sponsored by ITTATC that put on an all-day pre-conference workshop on Implementing Section 508 At The State Level: The Whys And How To’s. The workshop went great (no one left early – that’s always a good sign), and we got lots of good questions and feedback from the attendees.

I attended some sessions put on by Microsoft about the accessibility features they are building into their products.  Sara Ford put on a terrific presentation on Accessibility in Visual Studio (“Whidbey”) and ASP.NET. We also learned that the product teams at Microsoft are working together on accessibility and the new features will be implemented on a consistent basis across the products, so features like shortcut keys will behave the same way no matter what product you are using.  Speaking of which, did you know that InfoPath already has Keyboard Shortcuts available on the Help menu from within the application?  I didn’t.
