Have you mastered making informational web sites and applications accessible, but wonder what to do when it comes to new interactive media and animated content? Do you give up on accessibility because your company wants to use Flash or Ajax (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML)? Think accessibility is not possible with Web 2.0?

On February 21, 2007, Boston-IA (www.Boston-IA.org) and Adobe Systems Incorporated (www.Adobe.com) will present Adobe accessibility expert Andrew Kirkpatrick talking about "Accessibility for Rich Internet Applications".
Andrew will talk about how to make Adobe(r) Flash(r) Adobe(r) Flex(tm), Ajax, and other rich internet applications accessible for people with disabilities. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn that you can use the latest techniques and still maintain your commitment to an accessible Web.

The meeting is sponsored Adobe Systems, and Signature Consultants (www.sigconsult.com), an IT staffing solutions firm.
