Knowbility Conference

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009

Gene and Dave are always trying to learn more about making information technology accessible so they jumped at the chance to take part in Knowbility’s conference, John Slatin’s Access U, held at St. Edward’s University earlier this year.

The 2-day conference was called Access U 2009 Accessibility Conference.

The conference was created for usability professionals who know how to test for usability and want to learn to test for accessibility. Knowbility offered a set of classes to build the skills and knowledge needed to help clients meet mandates and to help conduct usability tests that include people with disabilities. Access U is usually held in the Spring, every year. Access to web-based information and activities has never been more important. Knowbility is working hard every day to improve technology access for all. Learn more at www.Knowbility.org.
