Did you know that 1 in 5 Americans have a disability? Your colleague or student may have a visual, hearing, motor, or cognitive impairment that limits activities, including the ability to learn and engage online. This is why content creators cannot let accessibility be an afterthought when creating learning materials. In Accessibility UX, participants learn about the legal obligation to accommodate disabilities, review Web Content Accessibility Guidelines that drive how assistive technologies interact with electronic content, and test websites for accessibility. Participants also try out a JAWS screen reader to experience navigating and reading web pages. This two-hour workshop is free and taught by UFIT accessibility training experts. The fall 2019 offering of Accessibility UX is:

Wednesday, November 13, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Location: Hub 221
