BCAB applies for EyeT4All trademark

In 2011 we successfully registered BCAB as a UK trademark. We wanted to protect the BCAB brand and the excellent reputation the British Computer Association of the Blind has built up over the past forty years or so.

With the success of the EyeT4All project still fresh in our minds, the board of trustees felt that EyeT4All would be a perfect umbrella brand for many of the association's future activities. To this end, we've begun the process of registering EyeT4All as a UK trademark as well.

BCAB meets Helen Grant MP

Léonie Watson recently met with Helen Grant MP at Portcullis House in London. The meeting was an opportunity to promote BCAB's work, and discuss ways in which BCAB could work with Helen to promote digital inclusion for blind and partially sighted people.

The meeting came about because BCAB trustee Clive Lever questioned Helen about digital inclusion at an event held in her constituency. Clive later met with Helen to tell her about BCAB and our activities, and suggested a meeting with Léonie as the next step.

BCAB at CSUN 2012

With help from the Awards for All lottery fund, Derek Naysmith and Léonie Watson attended the 27th Annual International Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference, on behalf of BCAB. The purpose of the trip was to promote BCAB and the advocacy work we've been doing around web accessibility, and to seek out new products and innovations of interest to BCAB members.
