Accessibility in the context of Mixed Reality

The world is changing due to innovation in Perception, Mixed Reality (MR) and Artificial Intelligence. In recent times, we have seen different companies use immersive realities (Augmented, Virtual or Mixed Reality) to build experiences that enhance their business experiences and better engage their customers.

Solutions exist in entertainment, gaming, architecture, manufacturing, e-commerce and many other industries. As a result of this, we have to build immersive experiences that humans can use. We all talk about how the web is for everyone, I personally believe that all technology experiences should be for everyone and this includes immersive technology. Regardless of race, height, disability, accent or other differences, as developers, we should be able to build immersive experiences for the global market which means building tech that everyone can use.

At the end of the day, we build for customers and we would want to have a satisfied user base. Are you a developer working in Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality or Mixed Reality and trying to learn how to build immersive experiences? In this talk, I will highlight a few ways these Immersive Realities are changing the way we interact with computers today. I will highlight best practices for inclusive design in immersive experiences. Lastly, this talk will also cover things to do post-design (during the implementation) of the application to help promote accessibility.
