About the course

Web accessibility enables people with disabilities to perceive, understand, navigate, interact with, and contribute to the web. Good websites are accessible, and accessibility is easy to implement with the right knowledge and tools. Most importantly, everyone - regardless of ability - can benefit from it.

This course will help you understand web accessibility and the techniques used to make accessible content. We will also cover WCAG 2.0 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) and ways to test for and achieve level AA compliance.
