"Good design is accessible design." - John Slatin
John Slatin AccessU
The John Slatin AccessU conference is named after the late Dr. John Slatin, a pioneering leader in web accessibility. John taught at the University of Texas at Austin for 29 years. He was co-Chair of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (WCAG-WG) as it updated and revised the W3C guidelines (WCAG 2.0).
In his honor, we designed a three-day digital accessibility training conference. Our goal is not just to talk about accessibility but to teach coding, usability, and inclusive design skills in an interactive and communal environment. Learn to integrate accessibility into your digital communications work, whatever your role may be.
