Web Accessibility Course

Attention fellow web developers! Google is giving a free online course to improve the accessibility of your website/application. While this might not seem like a big issue, the World Health Organization estimates the number of people with visual impairments to be 285 million. You can save them from a lot of frustration, and offer a far better user experience by following a few guidelines.

Making your site more user friendly to blind or low vision people doesn't have to be 'a pain in the ass'. It should come naturally, with a minimum of extra effort. Google will provide techniques and tools, as well as expert guidance to make the world wide web a slightly better place, one site at a time.
