Sept 30, 2010 Environments for Humans put together an online Accessibility Summit that is informative, engaging and tremendously valuable. It doesn't matter if you are new to accessibility, a seasoned veteran or somewhere in between, the Summit will have great information that will enrich and improve your practice. You can attend from your desk, your home or anywhere thanks to the online platform. Benefit from the experiences of leaders who design and deploy accessible technology every day. All of us at Knowbility are looking forward to the Summit.
