The IoT Era is Bringing Digital Accessibility Beyond Pure Compliance

Jan 06, 2019

dotCMS, a key player in content management and digital experience software, together with Myplanet, a software studio headquartered in Toronto, are hosting an in-depth webinar to show how forward-thinking brands are using IoT devices to bring their digital accessibility experiences above and beyond pure compliance.

From smart speakers to wearable technology, new touch points are now constantly emerging–bringing fresh touch points to the customer journey on a regular basis. While this constantly evolving environment gives brands the opportunity to innovate and delight their audiences with cutting-edge digital experiences, it also poses problems to those brands that still struggle with basic website accessibility. For those companies, the prospect of making their entire digital offering accessible to those with disabilities and impairments may seem impossible.

“We’re excited to present alongside the folks at Myplanet who have hands-on expertise using content management platforms, like dotCMS, to create accessible experiences for their customers on IoT devices,” said Stefan Schinkel, Enterprise Sales, dotCMS. “They’ve got a unique take on smart interface design and development and how it can be leveraged to address accessibility in the IoT era.”
