Who can use your websites? Are they accessible to as many people as possible?
Web accessibility has traditionally described the process of enhancing websites for people with disabilities. Come to this class to learn more about developing with accessibility in mind—and building a better web experience for everyone.
This class, taught by LeeAnn Kinney, will focus on general design principles, with some hands-on exercises. It is helpful to have basic knowledge of HTML and CSS. You should also plan to bring a laptop and some headphones to work along with the class.
