The workshop has activities based on reviewing and testing a selected website (Amazon.com) for accessibility. If you would like to participate, please bring a laptop or mobile device that can connect to the Event Center’s Wi-Fi. If your device won’t be able to maintain a stable connection, you can save the homepage of Amazon.com offline (File > Save Page as). It will only be possible to do some of the activities using the offline version.
DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL You do not need to download all of these accessibility tools (you can if you want). You only need one on the device you would like to use during the activities portion of the workshop. They are all free or have a free version but axe does require an account. I will be demonstrating all of these during the workshop.

|It’s transformed how people learn skills, find employment , create art and even form relationships|
|Unless you’re a person with disabilities.|
|From lack of captions for videos to sites that can only be navigated using a mouse - the majority of the Web is difficult for a large segment of the population to access. When it comes to the development of sites and applications - accessibility is often ignored or seen as an after thought.|
|But It doesn’t have to be this way.|
