Global Accessibility Awareness Day Panel Discussion​

Join us for an Ask Me Anything panel where you can bring your website accessibility questions and learn more about the importance of web accessibility and how to implement it.

You know you should make websites more accessible, but maybe you don’t know where to start. Or you have specific questions about things like retrofitting skip links or how to make sure your form is accessible.

In this panel discussion, we’ll talk with developers, content creators, and users of accessibility features, and answer your questions about making websites more accessible.

In this value-packed panel discussion, you’ll learn about:

  • Accessibility testing tools and how to use them.
  • Strategies for accessible content management.
  • What accessibility UI issues should be prioritized early in the web design process.
  • …And so much more!

We’ll save time in the end for Q&A, so bring your questions.
