The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) Center of Excellence in Nonvisual Access to Commerce, Public Information, and Education (CENA) and the Maryland Technology Assistance Program will be hosting the fourth Web Accessibility Training Day on November 4, 2015. As we celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, this event will look at some of the work that still remains to be done in creating equal access. Join us for sessions on the following topics and many more:

  • Web accessibility testing
  • Changing organization culture to foster accessibility
  • Accessibility in education
  • The Section 508 refresh

Whether you are a developer looking to polish your accessibility skills, an accessibility professional looking for the latest developments in web accessibility, or a manager wondering how to work accessibility into your process, there will be topics to interest you, as well as exhibitors to help you find custom solutions to any barriers you may be facing. This training is offered as part of the NFB CENA. The CENA serves to share the considerable knowledge that the NFB and its partners have of web accessibility and access technology in order to bring about greater accessibility in government, education, and business; to promote best practices nationally; and to build Maryland’s status as leader in the field. The registration fee is $100. Register now!

The event will be held at the NFB Jernigan Institute at:

200 East Wells Street at Jernigan Place Baltimore, MD 21230 United States
