Léonie Watson began using the internet in 1993, turned it into a web design career in 1997, and (despite losing her eyesight along the way) has been enjoying herself thoroughly ever since.
After many years as Director of Accessibility at Nomensa, Léonie is now working with The Paciello Group (TPG). Amongst other things she is Chair of the British Computer Association of the Blind (BCAB), writes for .Net magazine, and is a member of the W3C HTML Working Group and HTML Accessibility Task Force. She even appears every now and then on TV and radio to talk about technology.
Léonie’s session is called: ‘Digital accessibility: Strategy, content and delivery‘.
