Join us Thursday, June 8th, 2017, when Abby Bajuniemi, Linguist and UX Designer, will discuss how language and society intersect, and how context affects what language we use and learn in her talk, Don't Shut me Out! Language is Content, Usability and Accessibility.
We don’t always think of language itself as a usability or accessibility issue, but language is highly complex and socially constructed. This talk will center on why language is a content, usability, and accessibility issue, and highlight the consequences of not considering your users/audience when designing/writing content. You will learn how to reflect on your language choices, be more thoughtful with your content, and when/how to use translators.
