Attend Virtual AccessU 2020

For more than 15 years, Knowbility has produced the only three-day, hands-on conference that shares accessibility knowledge and skills among people in all roles related to digital communication. We have heard from you how valuable this training is. As a result, we are preparing to move this great content online. To help keep your accessible design skills current and sharp, we are building an interactive and communal learning environment online. Join us to learn what you need to know about integrating accessibility into your work.

The virtual conference includes four days of talks and trainings:

  • May 13 and 14 - Single-track, 2-day series of talks from accessibility experts. Live QA with each session.
