I congratulate you for working with KCL and Guy's but can you explain why the application needs such deep access permissions? Read calendars? Precise location? Phone identity?

Thanks.

The @MuseScore team (open source musical score writing) are 🤯 blowing my mind describing how to make music writing accessible to visually impaired musicians.

a usability technician

Designers are problem addressers.

In their talk "What are we talking about when we say "open design", Manufactura Independiente tell us that the word "open" has been emptied of all meaning because it's been used in so many different ways.

The Usability Testing workshop is finished!

Everybody is now describing their research question, the tasks, how they'll recruit the participants, the data they'll gather and the documentation they'll use.

Congratulations to everyone! 👏👏
