Speaker Announcement: Henny Swan

Henny SwanWe’re pleased to announce that Henny Swan of Opera will be joining us at Over the Air, speking on “Universal access across devices: can the mobile Web be made accessible?”

Henny has focused on accessibility and usability since the late 90’s when she started out working for a Chinese search engine and her own start-up in China. From there she worked as Senior Web Accessibility Consultant at RNIB in the UK consulting with Government, corporate and retail websites.

Henny’s interest is in where accessibility overlaps with mobile web design. She has a “built in” rather than “bolt on” approach to user access across websites, browsers and platforms. Working at Opera she also focuses on emerging standards such as HTML 5, SVG and CSS3 and how these can support built in accessibility across all platforms and devices.
