Workshop: Accessibility Basics

If you ever use the elevator, subtitles to watch that cat video during a boring meeting, or tabbed through a form, you have used an accessibility feature. As a community we understand that accessibility is necessary but when it comes to implementation, we often fall short.

This hands on workshop is for those interested in learning how to get started. You will take an existing website and identify and fix its accessibility issues.

You will learn:
  • Accessibility principles
  • Accessibility issues and their impact on users
  • Tools and techniques to identify issues
  • Strategies and methods for fixing accessibility issues
