SXSW 2019

Digital Accessibility Master Class


Learn practical accessibility design and development skills. Practice techniques with deeply experienced programmers, developers, designers, and content providers. Instructors participate at the W3C, developing global web standards and implementation techniques, including those that define accessibility. We will teach you to assess existing sites and applications, remediate for accessibility, plan for accessibility in future products, integrate inclusive design thinking into your own processes and product development life cycles, distribute accessibility responsibility across roles, and manage your products to meet and sustain accessibility goals. We introduce free and low cost accessibility validation tools and connect you to a global community of best practice.
