This course gives you practical reusable patterns and best practice accessibility examples to apply to your projects. Web accessibility is fast becoming a required skill when developing for the web. The accessibility guidelines can be difficult to understand and challenging to apply. It's often left up to developers to try and do their best making content accessible by attempting to read and understand very complex technical guidelines.
Employers are looking for developers with an edge, web accessibility is that edge. Understanding how people with disabilities navigate a website and how you can make the experience better will set you apart from other developers. If you work in website or software development, UX or UI design in any frontend or backend technology this course is for you.
Web accessibility is more important than ever with more and more services are moving online. Unless these services are accessible the web can become a huge barrier for people with disabilities rather than a great opportunity to help with independent living.
