Personal News and Accessibility resources

I wanted to let you all know that that Ill be leaving AbilityNet in two weeks time. Ive been with
AbilityNet for 10 years and im leaving the organisation, country and
continent to take up a post in Qatar as Deputy Director of the Mada
centre for assistive technologies.

The work with Telecentres has been one of the things that I have most valued
in those 10 years and I have every intention of trying to find a way of
staying involved, but in the short term I wanted to let you know that I
will be maintaining a bunch of probono stuff online that you are all
welcome to use

My main website will be
- This is the main hub of my stuff and will include my weekly AT
newsletter (please feel free to forward it on) my AT of the week
project, and the Access Collective Podcast which will be issued monthly -
By the way we welcome contributions

In addition Ive got a few other things im doing - im maintaining my
YouTube channel at
and thats where you will find my semi regular animated videocast

Finally I maintain my twitter persona several news times a day to pass
on new and interesting items related to technology and access - you can
follow me as @davebanesaccess

I hope we will all stay in contact

If all else fails email me at
