Designing Accessible VR Experiences : A 3D Virtual Tour in Mozilla Hubs

None
Virtual Reality introduces a host of new considerations when designing inclusive environments and experiences. This session is both a panel discussion and 3D experience. The panel will be on Zoom, and includes guests Mar Gonzalez Franco, a researcher at Microsoft, Dylan Fox of advocacy group XR Access, and Stephen Lee, an educator at Portland State University, exploring accessibility from the lens of research, community advocacy, and virtual education. A Mozilla Hubs 3D virtual tour (https://tinyurl.com/mozaccess) will be available throughout the festival showcasing accessibility techniques in VR and encouraging community contribution on how to make social VR more open and inclusive. The Hubs space is an ever-evolving archive, free for anyone to drop in at any time, regardless of participation in Mozfest. Your thoughts and contributions are welcome.
