In celebration of this year's Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), Deque offered an Accessibility Fundamentals Bootcamp training for free.
This training provided an overview of basic accessibility concepts, such as why digital inclusion matters and how people with disabilities use the Web. Through this training, participants developed a better understanding of how disabilities affect a person’s experience online, as well as a high-level introduction to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG).
This training was intended for all audiences; including policymakers, management, content creators, developers, designers, testers, and everything in-between.
