Cornell University will hold its first Web Accessibility Camp, “Universal Design for Any Person, Any Study,” Aug. 6-8, with sessions to be hosted by such groups as WebAIM, Siteimprove and Cornell Information Technologies.
WebAIM (Web Accessibility In Mind), a non-profit organization, provides web accessibility expertise and helps empower organizations to make their own content accessible. WebAIM will be on campus Aug. 6 and will host two sessions – one for content contributors and another for designers and developers.
If you update websites or write text for websites, you should attend WebAIM’s Content Contributor training. This training will cover accessibility guidelines; legal requirements and guidelines; how to evaluate your website for web accessibility; and what to understand about your website when it comes to those with auditory, visual, motor, cognitive and learning disabilities.
