Episode Info

The fifth and final episode of our series of podcasts recorded live at Camp Digital 2018 in Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre. 

In this episode we are joined for a chat by the fireside by Molly Watt.

Molly is an Accessibility and Usability consultant and inclusive technology evangelist.

Living with a genetic condition called Usher syndrome, causing deafblindness, Molly is completely reliant upon and benefits from using mainstream assistive technology.

Consequently, she is passionate about working in the world of digital accessibility, website accessibility and usability, patient participation and healthcare. Molly actively promotes the use of assistive technologies and the importance of website accessibility and inclusivity.

She has spoken widely about these subjects around the world, including at Harvard Medical school, the House of Commons, Apple HQ in Cupertino, Apple Corporate in Sydney and QCon in San Francisco alongside Sigma's Chris Bush. Molly is co-founder of the charity Molly Watt Trust, supporting those with Usher syndrome, and she runs her own company, Molly Watt Ltd, serving as an active ambassador and advocate for MWT and GN Resound.
