Knowbility got its start over 20 years ago by communicating the importance of accessibility to various communities and organizations through our flagship program, the Accessibility Internet Rally (AIR). Knowbility continues to host events and programs throughout the year to promote the education and application of accessible digital design. These programs cater to a variety of audiences and skill sets, but all share the mission of helping the digital world become a more inclusive space. Through conferences, competitions, webinars, and tools for educators, Knowbility is here to empower you towards accessibility.
Accessible Design and Digital Inclusion Skills are more important than ever! AccessU 2022 is THE place to learn and connect: May 9th-12th
The Accessibility Internet Rally (AIR) is the award winning web raising contest that gave Knowbility its start in 1999. Every year we gather teams of volunteer web professionals and teach them cutting edge accessible design skills. Teams use these skills to build or improve the web sites of community organizations. Groups that serve health, human service, environmental, artistic, or other community needs get new websites. Web professionals gain new accessibility skills. The most accessible sites win prizes. Communities get stronger partnerships. The world is better. And a great time is had by all. Join us!
AccessWorks is a user panel of people with disabilities maintained by Knowbility for usability testing of websites, mobile apps, and computer applications.
Knowbility is excited to announce our new events series: Be A Digital Ally! Beginning in February, this monthly series intends to cover the basic skills and principles of accessible web design. It is meant for people who regularly interact with and create content for the web but are new to accessibility.
As teachers, students and parents increasingly pivot to online education, Knowbility is here to help navigate the accessibility challenges that can come with a digital learning environment. We have resources for parents, teachers and administrators who want to learn how they can develop accessible digital programming for K12 students with disabilities.
Students need inclusive and accessible learning environments and materials to be successful. Join us this summer to learn how you can play a role. K12 Access Summit is a three-day virtual conference created with the intention to help districts, schools, and teams learn how considering accessibility in the classroom can improve student engagement and achievement.
The conference will be held July 26-28, 2022.
