Global Accessibility Awareness Day

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

To help mark Global Accessibility Awareness Day, DCP demoed the AMP accessibility testing software (from SSB Bart Group) to UCLA web developers. AMP is now easily available to Staff via single sign-on. We also gave an intro to what accessibility is, and the role programmers can play in improving it.

UC Berkeley’s event was broadcast via the Berkeley UStream feed from noon-2PM Thursday (The loop will continue, until replaced by the next event.)
