Summary

This all-day training event covers all of the core principles of accessibility, focusing on what accessibility is, how users with disabilities use computers, and how to test a web/ software system for accessibility.

Abstract

This topic-based training navigates attendees through several key topics in accessibility, testing methods, methodologies, and how to test various types of content for accessibility.

Note: This is not training about how to use assistive technologies. While we will be covering assistive technologies and will also be using them periodically, this training is not focused on testing a system for compatibility with screenreaders. This is a holistic training aimed at all facets of accessibility, which extends far beyond users of specific assistive technologies.

At the end of the training event, all attendees will receive a copy of all materials generated along the way. (These materials are for personal use only)
