Building Inclusive Software: Considerations and Constraints

Going beyond classic web accessibility considerations like screen reader support and multi-language support, Sitati’s talk will focus on less often discussed implementation decisions that exclude millions of users, especially those in the developing world where many classic assumptions about internet users do not hold. He will draw from his experience in building software in Kenya for both African and global audiences to recommend key tools & actions for building more inclusive technology.
