What’s New in 2019?

  • We’ve added an extra half-day on Friday, May 17th which will allow for repeat performances of our most popular classes, more networking opportunities, and a closing plenary.
  • We’re adding an exhibit hall! Our Demo Day was so incredibly well-received this year, we thought, “why not create a space where helpful tools are available for the entire duration of the conference?”
  • We’re moving conference accommodations closer to Downtown Austin with a confirmed hotel block in the Rainey Street Historic District—with waterfront views, too!

About AccessU

The John Slatin AccessU conference is named after the late John Slatin of the University of Texas, a pioneering leader in web accessibility. The goal is to provide tools that can immediately be put to use by designers, developers, project managers, administrators, and anyone who is responsible for online content and development. John Slatin AccessU teaches those skills in an interactive and communal environment where you will learn everything you need to know about integrating accessibility into your company.


AccessU offers a wide-variety of classes. As a developer & content person & communications person & trainer of coworkers, it was great to be able to bounce around to different areas of accessibility needs.

Always enjoy meeting and talking with the great accessibility professionals at AccessU!

I enjoyed seeing former colleagues and meeting new people. AccessU is a great opportunities for networking.

Demos were awesome! This was really great to see in real life what we had been talking about in theory.

I love the concept and would want to attend this in future years.
