WEBCAST SEP 19: A11yVR – Accessibility in a Virtual World Before Oculus – Alice Krueger + Ann Ludwig

isoc liveOn Monday September 19 2022 at 19:30 EDT / 23:30 UTC / 08:30 JST (Sep 20) the Accessibility VR Meetup hosts ‘Accessibility in a Virtual World Before Oculus‘. Accessible virtual worlds existed before VR immersive headsets, and VR headsets aren’t for everyone, other rich environments with a lower level of technology and welcoming communities are necessary to be fully inclusive. The Virtual Ability community in Second Life has facilitated the entry into virtual worlds of people with a wide range of accessibility needs since 2007. Alice Krueger and Ann Ludwig will explain the accessibility options of the new Resident Orientation Course and Sojourner Auditorium on Second Life’s Virtual Ability island, and the platform tools and design principles that lead to an accessible virtual environment.

The session will be webcast live via a partnership with the Internet Society New York Chapter Accessibility SIG (A11ySIG).
