Creating Web sites that are accessible to people with disabilities is a question of compliance with government regulation, and sound business decision-making. PB Tech’s Web site accessibility training class teaches you how to create an accessible Web site - whether you are building a new site from scratch, or if you are retrofitting an existing site to be compliant with accessibility considerations. In this class, you'll learn the fundamentals of accessibility: how people with disabilities experience and use the Web, what approaches to follow, and the laws and standards that will guide your work. Then, you'll focus on the technologies and techniques to build or modify Web sites so that they are accessible. Finally, you'll learn how to test whether a site has successfully met its accessibility goals, regardless of whether you're the developer doing the coding or in charge of ensuring compliance.
