Accessibility training for developers

If you’re reading this, you’re probably interested in web accessibility at UIC to some extent. If so, congratulations, you’ve come to the right place. As digital accessibility has become an institutional goal and policy & procedure are finalized, expect to see more content in this space: not only in the form of these accessibility news posts, but in the context of the Accessibility section of UIC’s central IT site.

Are you a web developer? If you write code and are unfamiliar with web accessibility, you may want to peruse our Laws and Policies page, as it contains technical documentation on U.S. law and global web standards. However, you may find our training session on Friday, October 14 to be far more valuable as a primer, as the content is geared specifically towards devs with no accessibility knowledge. This hour-long online session for developers will provide an overview of what web accessibility is, how to check your code, and much more. Even if you aren’t a developer, you may still find the term definitions and explanations of easy-to-use scanning software to be useful.

Here are the details:
