User Interface is the theme for Techshare 2010

D.N.I.S. News Network, India: If electronic accessibility is a concept that is new to India, user interface is a concept which is unheard of. The scenario looks likely to change with Techshare 2010 deciding to keep the theme centred on ‘User Interface’. The two-day conference cum exhibition will be held on February 15 and 16, 2010 in New Delhi and will have international delegates speaking on user interface of different technologies such as websites, mobiles, kiosks, A.T.M.s. etc.

User interface varies from one person to another depending upon the disability of the person. For example, the user interface of an A.T.M. for a visually impaired person should give a sound output. For a hearing impaired person, if there is an error and the A.T.M. machine gives a beep, it should also be written on the screen as ‘error encountered’.

The conference cum exhibition will display international work, products and research from the digital assistive technology industry. The ‘Experience Zone’ at Techshare India 2010 will provide an opportunity to not only see but experience different assistive devices and technologies that will be demonstrated by people with disabilities.

Techshare India is an international conference aiming to provide an opportunity to the government, corporates, N.G.O.s., educators and disabled people to bridge barriers with an inclusive perspective. The main objectives of the conference are to accelerate consciousness about accessibility, offering a platform for knowledge sharing and to extend the use of assistive technology.
