In this presentation, we will go over the fundamental basics of accessibility and how it relates to web design and development. This includes learning about the users who are most greatly affected by inaccessible design, and the types of tools used by them in order to access information on the internet.
We will also go over basic fundamentals of web accessibility for those who design the templates, those who code the elements of the site, and those who generate the content.
