language of the event

In this practical workshop, we will focus on how correct procedures in learning materials can prevent unintentional barriers for students with specific disadvantages and prepare materials in a form that will increase their usability for mainstream users.

The quantity of learning materials with which lecturers populate the e-learning environments of their courses has been increasing for a long time. Still, the technical quality of these documents, consisting, for example, of the correct use of typographic rules, the correct use of tools in editors, the presence of a text layer in the document, etc., are not proportionally increasing, which are means of increasing the reading experience and ensuring accessibility for all.


Svatoslav Ondra started his professional career as a lecturer and consultant in the field of assistive technologies and co-author of the Czech guidelines for web accessibility at the United Organization of the Blind of the Czech Republic in Brno and in 2001 he joined the Centre for Support of Students with Specific Needs (Teiresias Centre) at Masaryk University. He was appointed Head of the Special ICT Section, responsible for hardware and software curricula modifications for students with disabilities, conducting computer science and computing courses for blind people, and providing technological support to the Czech University Library for the Blind.

Michaela Hanousková studied Philology at the Faculty of Arts of Masaryk University, and in 2002, she joined the Centre for Supporting Students with Specific Needs (Teiresiás Centre) at MU. She was responsible for building a digital and tactile library for students with reading disabilities, including systematic guidance in the creation of digital and tactile documents (text and graphics). As she is also interested in digital cartography, she was a member of a joint team composed of experts from the Teiresiás Centre and researchers from the Geographical Institute of the Faculty of Science of MU, which was established to develop a technological tool for automated processing of cartographic data.
