Building off the Accessibility Hackathon, “Maker Mondays” will be held on the first Monday evening of each month from 6 to 8 p.m. in room 215, Adaptive Services at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library. These events are an opportunity for developers and users of adaptive technologies and web accessibility to get together to discuss and build solutions to accessibility issues.
The events will be open to remote participation via conference call and web audio-video. Topics for discussion will include reports back on some of the ideas that were generated at the Accessibility Hackathon, including the Mobile Accessible Book Generator, a 508 Repository, a Mobility/Security working group, a Metro Access vehicle locator app and various other accessibility fixes. We also plan to experiment with generating an accessible book by scanning and then converting into a number of different accessible formats. During the discussion we will also be experimenting with the AV and remote participation capability of the Learning Lab in room 215 -- using Ustream, Talking Communities and Google Hangouts.
