An introductory talk about inclusive design:
The conclusion of the talk will be that "Inclusive Design is a win-win, everyone should do it".
Peter joined IBM as a student in 1966. Specialised in databases and system design. Retired in 2003 and joined Bloor Research.
In 2004 his experience with some disabled friends and a report by the Disabilities Rights Commission prompted him to start research into IT Accessibility for the disabled. Recognising the growing importance of this area, he set up Bloor's Usability and Accessibility practice and now devotes most of his research to this area.
He is a founder member and secretary of the BCS Digital Accessibility Specialist Group.
