Web Accessibility Research: Disabled Users Still Locked Out

OSU-Tulsa Library

Faculty Research Excellence Series

Please join us Thursday, March 29th at OSU-Tulsa for "Web Accessibility Research: Disabled Users Still Locked Out."

Although accessibility guidelines for the Internet were issued in 1999, many Fortune 500 companies' web sites are virtually inaccessible to people with disabilities. Dr. Nicholas C. Romano, Jr., assistant professor of management science and information
systems at OSU-Tulsa, will discuss website accessibility for the visually impaired and give instructions on making websites accessible to these users. Dr. Romano has noted that librarians have been very active in website accessibility research.

The lecture will begin at 6 p.m. in OSU-Tulsa's Conference Center North Hall 150). OSU-Tulsa is located at 700 North Greenwood Avenue, near I-244 and Detroit Avenue.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

The Faculty Research Excellence Series is sponsored by the OSU-Tulsa Library.
