  • Website Accessibility

    Accessibility refers to the ease with which a person with disabilities can access something. Think of elevators, wheelchair ramps, Braille signage - all of which make buildings more accessible. Websites can also be accessible … or not. This month, Cindy Conlin of Conlin Web Design will be talking to us about website accessibility. We’ll go over accessibility barriers (things that make websites difficult or impossible for people with disabilities to use), how to find them, and how to build accessibility into your websites.
