On Tuesday, July 16, 2013 the FCC’s Accessibility & Innovation Initiative will host Professor Clayton Lewis as part of an ongoing Speaker Series. The event will run from 10:00 am-12:00 noon in the Commission Meeting Room located at 445 12th Street, SW, Washington, DC.


The presentation by Professor Lewis is called "The Future of Inclusive Design Online" and will focus on how the evolution of technology is creating both new barriers and opportunities for accessibility and usability.


Topics will include:

* the shift from accessing a presentation of content in a particular form such as a web page, to accessing the underlying content through a program that can render it in a different form, such as an audio summary;


* the shift from mass production to personalized customization of content;


* the development of tools that allow individuals with disabilities to be producers as well as consumers of content;


* and the design of policies that make these things possible.


Additionally, from 12:30 pm-3:00 pm, demonstrations of accessible technology solutions related to topics of the presentation can be viewed in the FCC's Technology Experience Center located in the same building.


Pre-registration is not required but is highly encouraged. Please RSVP to Aaron Vimont via phone (202) 418-
