The keynote speaker for the 4th Annual Digital Accessibility Expo (DAE), April 20, is T.V. Raman, Computer Scientist for Google, speaking on “Delivering Universal Access to Cloud-Based Information.” Raman will discuss the Web as a universal platform for delivering content and applications where users access (view) this information via a variety of “lenses” ranging from desktop browsers to hand-held devices. As we move away from a one-size-fits-all world of desktop computing, this talk will examine the opportunities for universal access that this next generation of computing is beginning to enable.
Raman has more than 17 years of leadership experience in advanced technology development. He has authored three books and received over 50 patents; his work on auditory interfaces has been profiled in mainstream publications including the New York Times and Scientific American.
