@Google free online course – Introduction to #Web #Accessibility – Lesson 1 preview available

Google Online Courses will this month present Introduction to Web Accessibility – a course that introduces tools and techniques for web developers to easily ensure that websites are more accessible to users who are blind or have low vision. The free course comprises text lessons, supplemental videos, practice code exercises and a hands-on project.  There is no requirement to do all the coursework so it’s ok just to lurk and look. Basic familiarity with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript is recommended, and a Chrome browser, as the course uses the Google Chrome extensions ChromeVox and Accessibility Developer Tools.  A preview of Lesson 1 is available. An introductory video is below.
