Awareness & Getting Started Courses
Getting Started in Accessibility (free onsite Chicago/Mpls and online)
If you’re new to website, software or mobile application accessibility, this is a great place to start.
This FREE 90 minute class provides a backdrop of the legal requirements for accessibility. We also explain how people living with cognitive, hearing, mobility and sight-related disabilities interact with computers, websites and software. Some with devices, some without.
Great for all staff levels, from coders to leaders.
Technical Training Courses
WCAG 2.1 Jumpstart (free online)
WCAG* 2.1, the latest version of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, was released in June. Wondering how they differ from version 2.0? Or how they impact real users living with disabilities? In this free webinar, our Accessibility Specialists who live with disabilities, will get you up to speed on the latest iteration of accessibility guidance.
Great for coders, developers, content managers, or anyone who wants to get a handle on the new 2.1.
Coding to Meet WCAG (online)
Making a website, software, learning environment or mobile application accessible starts with good code. But understanding how what to do, when to do it and how to get it done isn’t always easy. That’s where “Coding to Meet WCAG” steps in.
A “spin off” of our most popular class, “Applying WCAG to Your Project,” this 90 minute, code-intensive course will cover:
- How accessible, and inaccessible code, impacts users living with sight, cogntive, hearing and mobility disabilities.
- The most common inaccessible code issues and how to remedy them.
COST: $199 per person TIME: 1.5 hours
