On Wednesday 1st November, the Open University's XR Accessibility Workshop will feature a presentation by Joe Lamyman, focusing on the accessibility of XR technologies for students and staff with disabilities. XR, or Extended Reality, covers how digital spaces blend with with physical spaces and objects.
The workshop, for staff involved in Open University (OU) systems or module development, aims to identify accessibility resources within the university, address the challenges and opportunities of XR in education, and outline strategies for creating inclusive XR learning experiences. Joe's talk, "Introduction to XR Accessibility," will provide an overview of accessibility guidelines, with an emphasis on the W3C's XR Accessibility User Requirements, and discuss the essential needs for making XR experiences accessible to people with disabilities.
You can read more about Joe's adventures with XR in his post Inclusive XR: accessible 3D experiences.
