Event Details


Date and Location

We are going to start having monthly accessibility meet-ups for Accessibility DC at the Martin Luther King Library here in Washington, DC, on November 30, 2010, from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.

The Martin Luther King (MLK) Library is located at:

901 G St NW, Room 215
Washington, DC 20001-4531


Below is a breakdown of the schedule and how the meeting will unfold. Would greatly appreciate it if you can make sure you are on time so we can get started on time.

6:30 PM - 6:45 PM - Welcome everyone.

6:45 PM - 8:00 PM - Join Karl Groves of deque for his talk about the Firebug plug-in FireEyes. Karl will be explaining how the plug-in works and mostly doing this by showing different examples of it working. FireEyes allows the developer or deisnger see live any accessibility issues the page they are on is having.

Here is a short blurb from the deque website about Fireeyes.

Worldspace FireEyes is an unprecedented, nextgen web accessibility tool that ensures both static and dynamic content within a web portfolio are compliant with standards such as Section 508, WCAG 1.0, and WCAG 2.0. You can use another tool, but it won’t be fully JavaScript aware or handle event-based page content, like FireEyes.

Does your site:

  • Use AJAX, JavaScript, Flash, PDFs, or dynamic content?
  • Personalize multiple user roles?
  • Display pages based on user-entered data?
  • Use a content management system, with or without templates?
  • Need to be accessible, secure, and private?
You can read more about FireEyes at on the website.

8:00 PM - 8:30 PM - Closing remarks, clean-up, and information about after event wanderings. We will also be looking for more ideas of what talks people want to here and/or give for the next meeting.

Talk Ideas

We are looking for someone to lead a discussion or presentation about anything accessibility related for the group. Please contact with any talk ideas you would be willing to do.
