This podcast is a recording of Alan Brightman’s presentation at the K-12 Educators Market Symposium at MacWorld 2007 on January 10, 2007. The title of his presentation was The Accessible Mac: Yesterday and Today. Alan is the Senior Policy Director for Special Communities at Yahoo! where he is responsible for ensuring that Yahoo! is as responsive as possible to the unique needs of children and adults with disabilities as well as children with serious illness. Brightman was the founder of Apple Computer’s Worldwide Disability Solutions Group and served as its only Director throughout its 13-year existence. In addition, he co-authored Independence Day: Designing Computer Solutions for Individuals With Disability and produced a variety of videos designed to illustrate the role of technology in increasing options and opportunities for all children and adults. His presentation was refreshing, passionate and inspiring. Forget attending more conferences: Take Alan’s advice and take a local artist out to lunch instead and get inspired to make a difference for kids and learners!
