This webinar will take place on Tuesday 29 September 2020, at 1pm BST.

Dafydd Henke-Reed, Principal Accessibility and Usability Consultant with AbilityNet shares his expert advice about dyslexia and technology.  

In this webinar, Dafydd will champion how much technology has enabled him with his dyslexia. Mixing personal stories and professional experiences, this talk will go beyond spellcheckers and explore the benefit technology can have on people with dyslexia. It will also examine digital barriers to avoid, alongside good practice for enabling dyslexic users online. 

Assistive technologies, such as dictation software and voice assistants, have become mainstream. But digital communication has become less text oriented, with reactions, emojis, voice chat, and multimedia messaging being commonplace.  

If you're dyslexic and are looking for advice about how technology can help you, learn from Dafydd about how technology has revolutionised his experience of dyslexia.
