Owner and Lead Developer, Suberic Networks
Deborah dances all over the intersection of books, technology, and accessibility. She’s the lead developer at Suberic Networks, a consulting firm that specializes in technology solutions for publishing, libraries, archives, and content management, with a focus on accessibility and user experience. Deborah is an invited expert on the W3C Publishing Working Group, and has worked as a librarian and archivist, a book reviewer at Kirkus Reviews, an accessibility trainer and programmer, and a graduate instructor of children’s literature. She consults as the accessibility expert for several open source projects. Deborah has a number of soapboxes about information accessibility, but they all boil down to this: It should be easy to make feature-rich, beautiful design coexist with usability and accessibility.
Deborah organizes her non-fiction by colour.
She knows, she knows, but it works! She swears!
