For Austinites, March is SxSW season. It’s an honor for Knowbility to again join this annual tradition. If you are attending SXSW Edu today, catch our session on K-12 accessibility (details below). We won’t be at the expo this year, but we will be around from March 4-6.
As soon as SxSW EDU wraps up, we’ll move to the Trade Show at the Austin Convention Center. From March 10-13, we’ll be at booth 945. Are you wondering whether your website is accessible? We’ll be offering quick checks for accessibility and conducting assistive technology demos the whole week. Meet our staff and learn more about how we’re helping create a more inclusive world for people with disabilities.
