Web Accessibility Workshop

Feb 28, 2013 · Carrboro, United States of America

Who can use your websites? Are they accessible to as many people as possible?
Web accessibility is the process of making it easy for people with disabilities to use your sites. Come to this workshop to learn more about designing with accessibility in mind—and building a better web experience for everyone.
This two-hour workshop will focus on general design principles, with some hands-on exercises. It is helpful to have some knowledge of HTML and CSS. You should also plan to bring a laptop and some headphones to work along with the class.
If anyone is interested in attending but does not have access to a laptop, please let me know. We may be able to provide a laptop for the duration of the workshop.

This workshop will be led by Sylvia Richardson, a web developer with a passion for usability. She specializes in designing systems that meet Section 508 compliance guidelines, the Federal legal requirements for accessibility.
