Dear WAI Interest Group,

Today on the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, we are
announcing a new online course:
Introduction to Web Accessibility

From this course, you get a strong foundation in digital accessibility to
make your websites and apps work well for people with disabilities, meet
international standards, and provide a better user experience for everyone.

In addition to offering an introduction for people who are new to
accessibility, this course helps people who already know about
accessibility fill in gaps. It is designed *for technical and
non-technical* audiences.

Learn more about the course in the blog post: Free Online Course
“Introduction to Web Accessibility”


You can enroll now. The course will start on 28 January 2020 and is

It is based on the open curricula from the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative
