For the fifth year, Oklahoma ABLE Tech presented TechAccess Oklahoma, Oklahoma’s premier web accessibility conference. ABLE Tech ran the event over two days on Zoom in order to protect the health and safety of the growing technology accessibility community in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. We also reduced the program, running a single track of sessions on June 4th and 5th.
Roughly 125 individuals participated throughout the day on Thursday, and on Friday participation dipped a bit to just over 100. In the conference evaluation, 96.8% of respondents rated their experience with the conference “great” or “good”. Some comments from the group include: “I'm so glad you're doing this. It's so necessary, especially since things seem to change and evolve all the time.” “This is a not-to-miss event for me.” “Outstanding speakers and information.”
The conference also had multiple sponsoring agencies who helped make this such a great event, including the Oklahoma State Department of Education, the Department of Rehabilitation Services, the Oklahoma Office of Workforce Development, the Online Consortium for Oklahoma, WebAIM, and Popetech.
