Droidcon is India’s first national Android conference and is a part of the worldwide Droidcon series of events. This is a technical conference, for developers by developers.
Sessions are for 45 minutes each (30 speaking, 5 Q&A, 10 transition). We will have three parallel tracks over two days, with 8 sessions per track per day. Workshop sessions are 60 minutes each (50 speaking, 10 minutes for transition between rooms).
We recommend you illustrate your sessions with demos of your own code and applications. Please refrain from making a pitch without explaining how it works, as your primary audience will be developers.
Sessions will be ranked by community voting and selected by a program committee with representation from the local community and the international Droidcon events. Confirmed speakers get free tickets to the event. Anyone who proposes to speak but isn’t confirmed will still get early bird pricing. If you’ve proposed to speak, there’s no need to rush to buy a ticket. We’ll be in touch with you.
Participants may reserve their tickets from http://droidcon.doattend.com.
The event will have three parallel tracks. The list below will be consolidated down to three by the program committee.
People attending this workshop can learn how to use the alipi tool to narrate a web-page. And also see the available re-narrations.
At the end of the demo, the audience will be able to use and also develop on Alipi. Yes, it is open source.
lipi means alphabet, letter, writing or script in Sanskrit, and in many Indian languages. “a” as a prefix is used as a negation in Indian languages. So alipi as a word means without-alphabet or text/print-impaired.
In developing countries like India, in addition to the visually handicapped there is another significant segment of the population, namely the insufficiently literate, who are also a large target community for provisioning screen reading of content. This segment would, however, benefit from a visually rich rendition of a site while “reading out” the content. “Alipi - god’s own content” is an investigation into creating and managing locally relevant accessible content for communities.
Towards this is a11y.in - “re-narration Web”. It is a generic Web-framework for developing and rendering narratives that assist in accessing Web-content across cultural boundaries. Re-narration Web is therefore about Web-accessibility for digital Inclusion or e-inclusion.
alipi / a11y.in research and development is open source, and is seeking developers, narrators, designers and Internet interest groups to help with development, demonstration and formalization so that an effective consolidation of architecture, processes and recommendations can evolve over the next couple of years.
