Web content accessibility is crucial for reaching the widest audience possible and is part of Indiana University’s commitment to equity and diversity. IT Training can show you what it means to be accessible, the laws and standards that govern web accessibility, and how to easily address some of the common concerns that prevent individuals with disabilities from using the web effectively. We offer workshops on evaluating and updating your existing content. We can also show you how to create new accessible content for your web presence using a variety of software tools.

Here’s a list of resources you might find helpful after you’ve attended our training sessions.
