Examining Accessibility in an Emerging Digital Landscape, Ben Baker

Ben Baker from Bluecadet is focused on both objective and subjective levels of accessibility as it's applied to emerging digital technologies, such as touchless gestural control and augmented reality. Drawing on his own experience as a differently-abled manual wheelchair user and as a digital experience project manager, Benjamin discussed the need for new standards, and how those can be realized through R&D, prototyping, and testing.

Ben Baker is a producer and Bluecadet’s in-house expert on physical accessibility. Ben effectively balances the needs of designers and clients to deliver high-quality projects on time and on budget. Outside the office, Ben works with the city’s health community as an accessibility advocate, and captains the Magee Eagles wheelchair rugby team.
