Register for Cornell’s First Web Accessibility Camp

Cornell University will be hosting its first Web Accessibility Camp August 6-8, 2018: "Universal Design for Any Person, Any Study." Join us for sessions hosted by WebAIM, Siteimprove, Cornell Information Technologies, and more.

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 Monday, August 6, 2018, 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 that 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.

WebAIM’s Designer and Developer training will include tables, forms, JavaScript, CSS and responsive web design, complex images, Tabindex, modal and non-modal dialogs, and understanding accessibility APIs for widget and application accessibility. They will also cover information on ARIA. To register for the designer and developer training, you must also attend the content contributor training.

Next, join us on Tuesday and Wednesday for a variety of free sessions including how to remediate PDFs; testing and correcting color contrast; captioning your videos; sessions from Siteimprove, manual testing, and more. Register for our free sessions
